The Hatiora salicornioides is a unique, decorative houseplant native to South America in Brazil. It's also known as the Dancing Bones Cactus, Drunkard’s Dream, Spice Cactus, Bottle CactusResembling coral, it’s an epiphytic cactus-like Rhipsalis, which means it can grow on other plants. It is a rainforest species that grows on trees as an epiphyte (or occasionally on rocks as a lithophytic). In other words, these are cacti that grow in trees! They grow their roots into the bark of their host tree. Their only access to moisture and nutrients is from rain and droppings that fall from above. They also always grow under a canopy of trees and are never exposed to the full sun of the desert.

 

PLANT CARE

• Light: Thrives best in bright, indirect light with morning and evening sun
• Water: Allow soil to dry out between waterings
• Considerations: Blooms in winter and spring with white and yellow flowers
