Orchid Cactus

Family: Cactaceae 

Also known as: Dutchman’s pipe, lady of the night, and climbing cacti.  

Epiphyllum Cactus is a genus of epiphytic plants in the cactus family.  It is a succulent plant with broad, flattened leaf-like stems and huge, showy flowers.

About their natural environment:

Orchid cacti are native to tropical forests of Central and South America. In their forest habitat, the orchid-like cactus grows as an epiphytic plant in dappled sunlight. The orchid cactus attaches itself to a host plant and absorbs nutrients from its surroundings—like how orchids grow. 

Growing Instructions:

1. Plant in moist, well-drained soil and placed in bright indirect sunlight. Water when the top 1” of soil is dry.

2. Keep humidity above average, and temperatures between 65°F and 75°F  

3. Feed with a diluted fertilizer 10-10-10 during the growth periods in spring and fall. In February, use a feed with a 2-10-10 ratio to promote flowering.

What you'll receive:  One Orchid Cactus in a 4" pot.
