Family: Cactaceae
Marniera, Fern Leaf
Origin: Mexico
Small shrub 2-5 ftSemi-shadeEpiphyteRegular waterWhite/off-white flowersAttracts butterflies, hummingbirds

Very interesting plant. It is in the epiphyllum group and is easy to propagate and grow. It has angled stems, producing aerial roots, and white, beautiful flowers but is great to have just for its striking leaves. Flowers are large and nocturnal, pollinated by moths or rarely bats. The receptacle bears small bracts, hairs and usually spines. Fruits bear numerous spines. Flowers are generally produced in abundance with mature plants and are white and are very fragrant and usually last a single night.

Epiphytic in wet forests, keep the soil moist and well drained.
