Botanical name - Epiphylium Pumilum
Origin - Mexican rainforest
Medium Light - shade tolerant
I like to see early morning or late afternoon sun, but be careful not to put me a strong direct sunlight as I can burn easily. I would be happy in a north or west facing window.
Even though I'm called a cactus I am not drought resistant, remember I originate from a rainforest. Let the top inches of soil dry out before watering me again. Water until it runs out the bottom of the pot but don't leave me sitting in a puddle. Reduce watering in the wintertime when I am in my dormant phase.
Mist me regularly to maintain high humidity like a rainforest. Or why not pop me in a bright bathroom or kitchen where humidity levels are normally high.
If repotting please use a well draining soil mix to prevent water-logging occurring around my roots. I rarely need fertiliser, if using a cactus fertiliser be sure to dilute it to half strength, and only in the growing months (April to September, no more than once a month).
Did you know that when I'm a mature happy plant I will product bright white blooms.
