This is one of my favorite plants. I’ve only seen it in a store the time I purchased it. After growing so many house plants, for so long, you really enjoy something new and drastically different.
It is a cactus, but it prefers more water and less sun than most cactus. Native to Brazil, epiphytic, treat it like a tropical cactus. Keep it moist but not wet, dappled sun or morning sun if outside, a bright sunny window if inside. Prefers temperatures above 50’F.
I propagate it by pulling a small plug from the plant (small division with roots and leaves ) and putting that in water until I see new roots.
The plant needs to be trimmed right now so it will bush out more. This is the plant from a plug I took of the original about 2 years ago.
