Sandy (Wren107) very generously shared a cutting with me a couple years ago. I just got my first bloom last night. I worked all day yesterday then went straight to a night class. So didn't think about it until early this morning. (I get up at 4:00 AM) Just before daylight, around 6:00, I thought about it. I ran out, right before heading off to work. And this is what I saw!:) Oh so pretty. I've seen gorgeous pictures others have shared. But nothing quite beats looking right at it. There are more little ones yet to bloom. I hope to be able to catch one at night when they are full open.
Thanks to Sandy for sharing!!

Sandy gave me several cuttings of Epis several years ago and I noticed yesterday that a NOID she sent me has really put on beautiful growth. It will be at blooming size now and I'm excited what this "purple NOID' turns out to be!! I have 12 buds on two older Queen of the Nights that will be blooming soon. Another bloomed earlier this early fall.
