About
Fernleaf Cactus (Selenicereus chrysocardium) is a broad, epiphytic, spineless cactus up to 1.8 m wide, with branching stems holding long, arching, flattened, green leaves in a zig-zag pattern.  It can produce huge, white flowers with long, golden stamen filaments but it is pretty shy blooming so don’t expect to see these often (or at all). It is an epiphyte, which means that it grows on other plants. However, it uses the other plant only for support.

Plant Care
Fast growing and easy to look after. Prefers bright, indirect light. It doesn’t grow well in direct sun. This plant would normally receive light filtered through dense overhanging tree branches in the jungle.

Water regularly during summer.  Water the plant thoroughly until water drains from the bottom of the pot. Allow the soil to become slightly dry before you water the plant again. Excessive watering can cause damage to the root. From spring through fall, water the plant every two  weeks. Mature plants can survive even if they are watered sparingly during winter. Feed monthly, only during spring and summer months.

Collection Only
For collection, since it's too large for our cycle courier. Collection will be at a prearranged time either by yourself or with a suitable delivery van that you have organised.
