    Heck, mine have not even started flower buds yet this year.
    But when they do flower, the whole back porch smells nice!
    How old is that Epi?

    Very impressive, I recently aquired a night blooming cereus/queen of the night which is pretty similiar to an ep. Either way, congratulations on growing such a beauty!

    thanks guys! and to answer your question this plant is 8 or 9 years old from cutting and it took about 3 years to bloom. but i do fertilize the crap out of it. i give it a bloom booster almost everytime i water it and it does great. grows like crazy in the summer too. i have to cut it back every year.
