Epiphyllum bloomed today !!

I originally found this plant at the swapmeet for $15 a cutting. Not having a green thumb prevented me from purchasing one. Luckily, a few months later I was able to get a free cutting from a local nursery. I waited nearly two years for this plant to bloom flowers. The plant required minimum care and the only lesson I learned was to not place it on the ground, otherwise snails will feast on it ! It always hung outside and it grew rapidly once the snails were removed. Below are the pictures of the two blooms !! Amazing !!
