This Selenucereus chrysocardium is more commonly known as a fern leaf cactus. It's a rare jungle cactus that comes from Mexico.
They've recently been re-classified from Epiphyllium Chrysocardium - which is a little confusing, but they are the same plant.
And, as I love a plant fact... here's a little meaning behind the name of this unusual guy:
Selenicereus: Selene (the Greek moon goddess) + cereus (means candle in Latin)
Chrysocardium: Chryso (golden) + cardium (heart)
So.... Selene's Candle has a Golden Heart! ♥
Don't let the roots dry out. Water when the top third of the soil dries. Never over water. Cut back in the winter months. TIP: Use tepped water when watering to avoid shocking the water roots with cold water.
Place in a shaded spot in the house. They thrive in low-light conditions. Ideally pop in a position where they will get morning sun and then shade for the rest of the day.
Re-pot every 2 to 3 years.
Great in bathrooms.
Delivered in a 14cm plastic hanging pot.
