​Epi Con Starts in:


Epi Con started in the fall of 1987.  Representatives of the Epiphyllum Society of America (ESA), San Francisco Epiphyllum Society (SFES), San Diego Epiphyllum Society (SDES), South Bay Epiphyllum Society (SBES) met at the San Diego Botanical Gardens and decided there should be a meeting open to the general memberships of the combined Societies. Thus, the first Epiphyllum Conference (Epi Con) was created.

Every two years one of the three Southern Epiphyllum societies hosts Epi Con.  Epi Con is an event where enthusiasts from all over the world gather to compare notes on all things epi-related.  This year SDES will host Epi Con XVI at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park, Escondido California. 

Epi Con XVI will start off with a Continental Breakfast.  ​Presentations will include reports from the different Epi Societies and Speakers covering topics of interest to our members.  We will also have a Silent Auction for of ​New​ ​Hybrids and ​Rare Epi ​Cuttings.

You will be ​one of the first to walk through the new Epi area at the Park.  ​​The day will end with a Tram Ride around the Park. 

Admission and parking at the Safari Park is included with your purchase of your Epi Con XVI ticket.
