Description How to Grow Delivery

Native to the Bolivian rainforest, where it grows on trees and rocks, Lepismium bolivianum is an intriguing spine-free trailing cactus. This unusual houseplant forms a cascade of flat, fleshy foliage that tumbles over the side of its hanging pot, and may bear pinkish white flowers. Forest cactus is very easy to care for, packing a tropical punch for little effort. Height: 120cm (47in). Spread: 30cm (12in).

Place Lepismium bolivianum in a bright spot with plenty of natural light but out of direct sunlight. Water when the top of the compost dries out, allowing any excess to drain away. Reduce watering in autumn or winter but don’t allow it to dry out completely. Avoid humid environments such as bathrooms. Keep at 18-24?C.
