Epiphyllum Gatemalense Monstruosa Cactus. Hanging Cactus.
The Epiphyllum Gatemalense Monstruosa Cactus has long succulent curly curved bright green stems which cascade down over the pot. It uses this stem formation to catch moisture and light.  

Nocturnal white fragrant flowers are around 3 inches wide and 6 inches long followed by bright pink oval shaped seedy fruits which are edible. Self pollinating.

Blooms resemble an orchid flower hence the name Orchid Cactus. This cactus only blooms when it is pot bound so do not rush to repot.

Very on trend and perfect for providing a dramatic accent to your house or office.

These types of cacti are Epiphytic, meaning in habitat they grow in trees or on rocks, getting their nutrients from the air or dead leaves and other debris collected in the cracks or crevasses. 

Very easy to keep needing minimal maintenance.
