Full Description: Species Epiphyllum Phyllanthus *var. hookeri-(Strictum)- Has a 4 to 5" Nocturnal bloom all white with narrow petals in a wheel form with a yellow stamen with a purple tube, this species has a very wide native habitat distribution. From Florida to the Caribbean all the way to Mexico and even South America, so all are white generally in a wheel form bloom and night blooming (Nocturnal) but the stamens and anthers can have slight varying colors or the blooms can even be fragrant or not so fragrant, there are many variants of this species due to its very wide distribution.

The growth is fairly easy to recognize from most hybrid Epiphyllums in that its almost 100% flat with occasional 3 sided but often narrow stems and smooth flat growth with a pronounced central vein down the middle of the mature stems. Like most Epiphyllum species Epiphyllum Strictum blooms mid to late summer unlike hybrids which tend to bloom mostly in spring-except for the off season bloomers which there's several. Epiphyllum Strictum Grows very fast in summer heat but can get some damaged tips in winter cold under 50 degrees. Epiphyllum Strictum will more than recover when it warms though, a very fast grower in summer. Very common in collections worldwide, Super Fast grower! Roots very easy!
