Hello, last year I planted this species in gravel in a bulb frame, and 
this year it bloomed for the first time. See the image at…
It and C. breviflorus (planted in open ground) produced flowers and fat 
seed capsules this summer.  Last winter was -7C/20F at coldest here 
which didn't seem to bother either one.  Winter conditions are quite 
different for each: C. epiphyticus in bulb frame culture has a dry 
winter, while C. breviflorus is subjected to copious cold rainfall, 
although soil is free draining.
