Piette Epi Galleria specializes in the sale of epiphyllum and hybrid
epiphyllum cuttings, often called orchid cacti, through the internet.
All of the cuttings are grown by Mark Piette and guaranteed for quality.
Generally each cutting is 6 to 10 inches long but some varieties have
short growth and some are very wide. I try to maintain the 6 to 10
inch rule, but occasionally you will receive a smaller cutting, but
I will not knowingly ship a cutting that is not viable. The cuttings
are all treated with growth hormone. If you are not satisfied with
a shipment, inform the galleria by Email or telephone within 5 days
of receipt, and arrangements will be made to rectify any problems.
Epiphyllums are easily cultured and fairly hardy, as long as you keep
them in a friendly environment as described on the page "ABOUT
EPIPHYLLUMS" and the page "CARE AND FEEDING" The catalog
contains enlargeable photographs when they are available, so you can
see what you are buying. Words cannot possibly do justice to these
truly gorgeous natural treasures and, like a precious opal or a butterfly's
wing, a photograph can't either. They are true cacii, but they have
evolved differently than the desert cactus and do not have the unfriendly
traits of desert cactii; ie. sharp spines. The growth habit varies
from almost vine-like to tall and to a hanging habit. Thus some types
do well in hanging baskets and some like a trellis. They are all excellent
for a patio or in a cactus and succulent garden.

but Epi Galleria cannot be responsible for security thereafter. If
you have concerns about security after delivery, it behooves you to
have your shipment sent to a secure address. Alternate shipping methods
complicate the process, making it more time consuming and expensive
for all customers.
