I inherited 3 new epiphyllums last summer. A friend's mother died and I was gifted with 3 of her lovely specimens. Plastic knives carefully stuck in each old plant held clues to its variety. Black scratchy writing declared this one to be King Midas. I looked it up online. Yep. King Midas. Golden orange bloom 5-7 inches across.
A grand shimmering flower. She stayed open for nearly 4 days. Just today she began to draw her petals in around herself…
More should open in the next few days. There is something very right about a world where such a flower exists.
Of course it's the weekend now. And there's something very right about that also. I'm going outside to set up my journal table so it's all ready in the morning. Happy Friday!
