“Epiphyllum” Genus

Epiphyllum is native to Central America and South America. The name Epiphyllum comes from the Greek word “epi,” meaning “on” or “upon,” and “phyllon,” meaning “leaf.” Epiphyllum plants are typically spineless with sprawling stems that turn them into vine-like plants. The stems appear flattened, so most of the time, they were mistaken as leaves.
