A gorgeous epiphytic cactus with wide, segmented, scalloped stems up to 5 ft. long.
Stems are green flushed with pink in ideal conditions (bright shade, with regular water). If given higher light and grown more on the dry side, the stems will turn a brilliant magenta color!
Fantastic in a hanging basket.
They do great in a mix of equal parts peat or cocoa fiber, perlite and orchid bark.
Water when the soil starts to dry a couple inches down. Keep a bit more on the dry side in winter.
Not tolerant of frost. It will survive temps. of 32-35 degrees for short periods but the leaves will get spotted and rough looking.
USDA Zones 10b-13b
Pot size 4 inch
