Hatiora salicornioides - Drunkard's Dream
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.

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.
A spunky and sweet little plant! Arrived in great condition and settled in nicely!
This is a cute little plant, and it arrived like all the other plants I’ve ordered from Pistil’s - in perfect condition. I’m amazed at how well they pack delicate plants to survive shipping across the country. I’m interested to see how this one does, since I’ve never owned this variety before.
