Disocactus flagelliformis - Rattail Cactus

Size: 6" Hanging Basket
Sale price$ 49.99


The unforgettable appearance of the Rattail Cactus will enchant you both in beauty and ease of maintenance. These stunning succulents are surprisingly epiphytic and enjoy a soil-less environment to grow in (such as vermiculite and sand). They thrive on neglect and will love the sunny spot in your home. When you adopt a Aporocactus flagelliformis, you're adopting a desert plant, so don't try to over-cherish it with water, as it will rot if kept too wet. 

When the Aporocactus flagelliformis is happy, it will treat you to a flower display that strongly resembles a flower of a Christmas cactus! A beauty to behold!
