Hilderwintera Colademononis. Hanging Cactus.
The Hilderwintera Colademononis Cactus has long succulent pendent light green stems which branch at the base and have very long, soft hair-like white spines completely covering them. Very decorative these rope-like stems cascade down giving a waterfall effect. 

Free flowering, abundant amounts of bright red blooms up to 7cm long, appear in mid to late spring, each lasting for a few days.  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.
