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.
Mark Piette Epi Galleria is designed to take orders via the internet through
PayPal or you can order by mail. Telephone orders are not accepted, but
telephone inquiries are welcome as are inquiries via the site Email link
below. The "ORDERING INFORMATION" page will tell you how to
order if you are not using PayPal, and a printable order form is provided.
If you use PayPal, you only have to login or register on PayPal when you
first click on "Add To Shopping Cart". After that PayPal will
add up your purchases, shipping and handling and, for California residents,
are via U. S. Postal Service priority mail and can be tracked to delivery,
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.
