We tend to think of cacti as exclusive to the desert, but plenty of cati varities live in the jungle, too. This Lepismium Boliviana grows so high up on the sides of trees that it doesn't fear getting chomped on, and it's given up its spines. Architecturally speaking, its elegant draping appendages look stunning either hanging in a pot or on a high shelf.
Pot size: 17cm x 13cm (diameter x height)
Fast growing and easy to look after.
Light: 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 jungles of Central America.
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 to three weeks. Mature plants can survive even if they are watered sparingly during winter. Feed monthly, only during spring and summer months.
