I almost bought one of these purple/black beauties but held off until we had seen everything.
Firesticks. I can't believe I don't have one of these.
While stopped in front of a booth selling siding or windows or driveway pavers, I happened to look down and see a little oasis of slightly sad-looking potted aloes. But I freaked when I noticed the Epiphyllum among them. The $4 price tag made the decision easy.
She needs a little TLC--some pruning, a re-pot and a good watering, but I couldn't be happier.
Check out the cool woody stems. It's probably a cutting off a much larger, old plant.
