An unusual ornamental cactus which hails from the rainforests of Mexico, with funky fishbone shaped foliage and fragrant flowers. (That's a lot of F's!)
Flowers, when produced, are creamy white, with long yellow to orange-brown outer petals and are scented.
Likes a medium to bright position out of direct afternoon sun. In later summer/early autumn make sure the plant receives a little full sun (although not peak afternoon heat), this will encourage it to produce flowers.
Unlike its desert cousins requires soil to be kept lightly moist during summer but can dry out a bit during Winter.
Likes high humidity so steamy bathrooms or kitchens are best.
Super long stems can be pruned, and new stems will usually grow from the cut making the plant look fuller.
Current length: approx 30cms.
Ultimate length 1 - 2 metres but can be trimmed.
Comes with your choice of pot and handmade care label.
