    Hi,

    I have an orchid cactus in a hanging basket on my front porch. It is a northeastern exposure. I repotted the cactus about 2 years ago. I used regular potting soil. I water it when it gets almost dry. It hasn't bloomed in a couple of years. I don't really know what I am doing with its care. I have never fertilized it. It seems to be ok and always adds new leaves. Would anyone know a better way to care for the plant? Am I doing something wrong?
    I've never seen the flower in prime shape. I would always get to the bloom too late in the morning. I'd like to make it in time one day [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/rolleyes.gif[/img]

    Hi Khai,

    Thanks for the reply. So could it take pretty much full southwestern Texas summer sun?

    Assuming your plant is an epiphyllum, here's a site with some info...
