Mistletoe Cactus (Disocactus nelsonii) Collection #3
Mistletoe cactus (Disocactus nelsonii) is a tropical cactus that grows in rainforests. This shrubby cactus is perfect for indoor-growers! Fast growing and easy to care for.
Some of the largest and most beautiful flowers (bright pink) of all cacti are produced on this epiphytic jungle cactus. The plants’ stems have become broad, flat, leaf-like organs to collect the light, as moisture is normally abundant. The new growths are quite susceptible to drought until they harden and produce their toughened waxy stems. A look along the edge of the flattened stems will show little notches containing the areole, and it is from these that the flowers are produced
All Rhipsalis varieties are non-toxic to pets
