Hatiora salicornioides - Dancing Bones Cactus

Low Stock
$ 42.00
Size

Hatiora salicornioides looks like something from an underwater dreamscape. Composed of many tube-like branches that grow from upright, woody stems, Hatiora salicornioides is often called by its common names -- "Dancing Bones" and "Drunkard's Dream" cactus -- because of its contorted growth habit and bottle-shaped segments. Each stem can grow to be quite long, and eventually the Hatiora will gently cascade over the edges of its pot. When the cactus blossoms, tiny bright yellow flowers develop into small pink berries. 

A jungle cactus, Hatiora salicornioides is epiphytic, meaning that it grows in the crooks of trees in its native forest habitat. This means that it requires little soil to survive, and is tolerant of lower light and more moisture than most cacti. As such, it's an exceptionally easy houseplant to care for, perfect for houseplant beginners and experts alike. 

PLANT CARE

 Light: Prefers bright, indirect light, but tolerates medium, indirect light
• Water: Drought tolerant. Water when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry to the touch 
• Considerations: Use a well-draining soil, and select a planter with drainage. Pet friendly!

Hatiora salicorniodes/Drunkard’s Dream

Very nice succulent plant, the first of this branching kind that I’ve owned. It’s been about a week since I’ve had it and I see evidence of new growth already so I can assume it is a very healthy plant that I received from Pistilis nursery. I will go to them when I’m looking for something unusual to add to my collection.
