Full Description:

Species Epiphyllum thomasianum Has a large 8"+ diameter pure white nocturnal bloom, with golden-yellow filaments and cream anthers. Back petals can be greenish-orange with hints of dark orange and reddish streaks. Very instesting growth with a combination of wide floppy stems with deep serrations on stem edges and also random long canes or spiky type growth, which eventually sproat wide stems or leaves towards the upper regions of the long spikes, very unusual & beautiful growth.

Epiphyllum thomasianum was first discovered in 1895. Although not severely threatened in its native habit which has a wide range Epiphyllum thomasianum is still relatively rare in most collections.

Epiphyllum thomasianum is very similar with wide stems and the spiky growth to Epiphyllum oxypetalum, but the bloom although fragrant is not as intense as E. oxypetalum. The stems also have deep serrations at the aeriole points unlike E.oxypetalum which are usually smooth. The 2nd picture above shows the typical deep indentions on the stem edges.

Native habitat; of Epiphyllum thomasianum is found in these countries; Panama, Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Columbia & (Ecuador-not confirmed though).

Range; This species has a wide range, occurring from Mexico (State of Chiapas) through Guatemala (Departments of Escuintla and Sacatepéquez), in Nicaragua (north central and along the Caribbean coast), Costa Rica (Cartago, San José), Panama, and northern Colombia (Magdalena; Rosii 1998, Bauer 2003, Guzmán et al. 2003, Hunt et al. 2006). There is supposedly a record from Ecuador but this has not yet been confirmed. In its native habitat Epiphyllum thomasianum prefers altitudes between 50 and 2,000 meters where lowland and montane wet forest are present.

Synonym(s): Phyllocactus thomasianus, Epiphyllum macropterus, Phyllocactus macropterus, Marniera macroptera
