Meet Lillith. To say she is a powerful woman would be an understatement. Is she prickly? Not at all. She is the embodiment of grace and beauty. Yet when she walks into the boardroom of her Fortune 500 company, every head in the room bows slightly out of respect for this wonderous woman. Looking at her now you would never know that as little girl, she was often labeled demon by her family for her energetic antics. Over time she has focused this energy, next stop? World Domination.

We recommend planting this plug in our Epiphyte soil.

THIS PLANT SHIPS AS A 1″ FULLY ROOTED STARTER PLANT, AS SHOWN IN THE SECOND PHOTO. It will come wrapped in moss and tucked in a growers pot for safety. The terra cotta pot with the mature plant, shown in the first photo, is not included. If you order multiple plants, we put them together in one pot so they stay moist and insulated. If you think we haven’t sent the full order, please take out the plants from the pot first to count them.

Winter shipping has begun… as a heartfelt thank you, this year we are including free winter protection (thermal insulation liners every time and heat packs as necessary) in each box. *Free winter protection only available through website orders, not our Etsy shop

Suggested Uses


  • Very long stems can safely be cut back to shorten the plant. New stems will grow right from the cut spot making your plant grow back fuller.
  • The white flowers bloom nocturnally, exuding a strong, sweet scent.
  • The epiphyllum is a forest epiphyte from Mexico and loves high humidity. To increase the humidity, position the pot on a tray filled with gravel and keep this topped up with water, but not enough so that the pot is sitting in water.
