Jungle Cactus, Drunkards' Dream -
low water requirement mostly shade exposure


   This interesting epiphytic member of the cactus family is a Brazilian native, where it would live up in rain forest trees, therefore it won't tolerate frost and needs to be in some shade. Small yellow-orange flowers bloom at the end of the spineless jointed bottle shaped stems, hence the common name Drunkards Dream.  It grows beautifully as a hanging plant with stems that can reach up to 18" long.
