Epiphyllums require bright light from early spring to autumn, then partial shade after flowering. During summer, epiphyllum plants like epiphyllum oxypetalum do best in broken shade under trees; in winter, they need protection from frost. Flowers range from small to very large; color range includes white, cream, yellow, pink, rose, lavender, scarlet, and orange, though some varieties blend colors. After flowering, plants should be rested for 6 weeks when they will need only enough moisture to prevent the soil from becoming completely dry. At all other times, the compost should not be allowed to become too dry. Water less frequently in late autumn and winter. Overhead spraying is also beneficial when they need only enough moisture to prevent the soil from becoming completely dry. Stems are long, flat smooth, and usually notched along the edges, and are spineless.
