We much prefer the common name of this epiphytic cactus - the Hairy-Fruited Wickerware Cactus - what a belter of a name that is! Relatively easy to grow, this houseplant needs a minimum temperature of 10 degrees and to be in a partially shaded area but with good indirect light. Mist regularly with soft water, and water moderately during the growing season. Keep just moist, but not wet in the winter, and feed with a half strength general purpose plant food occasionally during the growing season. feeding can commence once the buds appear for the scented , white, spring flowers, which appear on the ends of spidery like branches in early spring. Funky and spiky asa young plant, the branches tend to droop down as it matures, making it an excellent choice as a hanging plant.
