Flowers: open during the night but lasting until midday, pale green to white.
Cultivation and Propagation: It’s a fairly easy plant to grow. During the summer it is best to keep the plants outside where the temperature can rise to over 30 C with no harm to the plant. Needs good drainage. They like only a short winter's rest and should be kept almost completely dry during the winter months.
Water regularly during the summer, as long as the plant pot is allowed to drain and doesn’t sit in a tray of water. During hot weather, you may need to water the plants more frequently. From late September watering should be reduced to force the plant to go into a state of semi dormancy. By October you should be back in to the winter watering regime.
Needs full sun, avoiding only the harshest summer sun.
Grown specimens resist to -4°C for a short time, but it is best to keep above 0° C to avoid ugly spots on the plants epidermis.
