SOLVED: Jungle cactus?

Brooksville, ME(Zone 5a)

This is Barney's Aunt Francis's cactus. She said it like a dark room in the winter. She keeps it under this tree all summer

Barney's mom and I are going to try to get a cutting from it. I havn't asked yet but I guess I might offer to trade something. Is this easy root?

Beats me. I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to cacti.

it is easy to root epis [short for ephyphyllum]. take a cutting, leave the cutting to dry out a couple of days. u try to callus it to prevent any fungus or rotting on the cutting. once callus is formed, plant in moist soil. leave alone for a few days, u'll notice sign of new growth. water sparingly. do not allow to completely dry. they are very easy to care for and multiply from cuttings to keep them under conrol.

WOW so beautiful big red flower. I love it!

That sounds easy....I think.....I will pass it on. I don't think she would have thought of letting the cutting dry out. Seems like the last thing you would want to do doesn't it? Thanks for the information.
