A few of my epiphytic cacti are in flower today, brightening up a dull day. The Disocactus macranthus has a really strong scent!

Lovely, what temperature do you keep your Disocactus at?

The Disocactus is really striking, are they tricky to grow? I think I only have Schlumbergera flowering, just garden centre ones. Although we do have a yellow one flowering which is quite fancy for a garden centre Christmas cactus at least.

I'd just like to join the gasps of admiration for the disocactus - what a beauty!

It's in my 15C room., but I think it can go colder, as I got it from Paul Bond, and he certainly doesn't heat his greenhouse so warm.
