Lepismium bolivianum

Forest Cactus

This product has no reviews yet.  Write a Review

Another impactful plant that thrives on neglect, with large hanging leaves that curve and droop in unique patterns giving each plant a unique identity.

An epiphytic cactus, it requires minimal watering and barely any sunshine to flourish. Can be hung from a high place to allow its foliage to cascade gracefully from the container, or placed on a shelf or counter top to spread out.

Brilliant at cleaning the air and occasionally producing pinkish white flowers, it has surged in popularity recently along with many others of our hanging plants.
