Epiphyllum guatemalense monstrosa ~ Curly Locks Orchid Cactus

Write a review


This is a great plant to add to your collection for both uniqueness and ease of care.


The cactus needs to have moist roots at all times, but they should not be sitting in a dish of water. Make sure the top 1/3 of the soil is dry before watering. In late winter, expose the cactus to cooler temperatures to promote spring flowering. Consider that these plants grow in thick forests in the understory and are used to dappled light at best. Just like any plant, they need light but should be protected from bright midday light. Morning sun is preferable with indirect light the rest of the way.
