I had a different one at one time.a gigantea(starfish cacti) its flowers
DID smell when blooming.its stems are velvety and thicker than huernia.and like it dry,no moist...dry.I drowned it to death.I found someones page who grows/finds quiet a bit of them(and other stuff too epis,passionflowers ect.)http://www.kammlott.net/index.html
I'm going to leave mine in that white basket,but may try getting it out to put in a hanger.Ursula says mine is getting good nutrients but need a brighter spot.My stems are long cause is shaded and they are leggy(leggy?I thought it looked good......)I guess mine should have more of the segments growing
off the stems and don't cause is shaded more.so will give it gradually more lighting& will keep it dry this winter and above 50.
Here is a post from epi forums and it has photos& links and lots of info on these.http://www.epiforums.com/showthread.php?t=979&page=1&pp=10
