Epiphyllum are epiphytic cacti as their name suggests. Some call them orchid cactus due to their large bright blooms and growth habit. Epiphytic plants grow on other plants, not in a parasitic fashion but as hosts. They are not cold hardy and generally can be found only as houseplants or greenhouse specimens.

Jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus) is a tropical tree in the fig, mulberry and breadfruit family (Moraceae). It’s origin is between Western Ghats of Southern India, all of Bungladesh, Sri Lanka and the rainforests of the Phillipines, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
It bears the largest fruit of all trees, reaching as much as 55 kg (120 pounds) in weight, 90 cm (35 inches) in length, and 50 cm (20 inches) in diameter. A mature jackfruit tree produces some 200 fruits per year, with older trees bearing up to 500 fruits in a year. The jackfruit is a multiple fruit composed of hundreds to thousands of individual flowers, and the fleshy petals of the unripe fruit are eaten. The ripe fruit is sweet (depending on variety) and is commonly used in desserts. Jackfruit is commonly used in South and Southeast Asian cuisines. Both ripe and unripe fruits are consumed.
