A well known and very popular shade-loving epiphytic cactus for the greenhouse or windowsill, also found under a variety of other generic names such as Nopolxochia and Disocactus, and also by the superfluous cultivar name of 'Deutsche Kaiserin. A native of Puebla and Veracruz, Mexico, it was also known to the local inhabitants as Nopalxoxhitl. It is very reliable, withstanding temperatures to -5oC in winter and blooming at the end of May or early June with its 9-10cm-long flowers, almost without fail. Photo: Roy Mottram

Front cover: Aylostera 'Summer Song'. One of the best of Southfield's recent introductions, this plant is strongly influenced by its Aylostera narvaecensis parentage, itself well known for the abundance of its floral displays. Below the plant is a mass of heads forming a hemispherical mound. The flowers are up to 3.7cm long and broad, at first opening salmon-pink but soon changing to a blushing rose-pink Photo: Roy Mottram
