This hybrid succulent is not always easy to get to flower regularly. There is also another species which look identical but flower in the Spring-Summer. I find that in order to get it to flower at Christmas time it needs plenty of sunlight and some harsh treatment as regards watering. Then in the Autumn it needs a chilling period with moderate amounts of water. Then it will produce its majestic Epiphyllum type flowers at Christmas.
