I received 2 cuttings of this plant in trade 9/22/99. I noticed the first flower bud 10/12/01. This was a surprise because I thought my epiphyllums were finished blooming. The flower opened in the evening of 10/29/01. It measured about 6.5" across. The inner petals were funnel-shaped and the outer petals were wide open. It had a slight fragrance at night. The flower started to close up on 11/1 and by 11/2 it had passed.
The flower looks very similar to 'Padre' but the bloom is smaller. Also, unlike 'Padre' the bud is not yellow.
