This handsome Epiphyllum Red Tip is also known as an Orchid Cactus. This is due to the fact that when it blooms the flowers look like those found on an Orchid.
When grown in a bright spot, the young growing tips of this succulent have a reddish flush. It is usually grown for its decorative foliage, which is studded with clusters of small spines along its length.
These cheeky plants look great in a hanging planter or draping down over the side of a pot cascading down from a shelf.
The photo of the plant in bloom is indicative only and is to show how the plant looks when in bloom under the right conditions.
- Nursery pot size: 14cm (the hangpot is lipped so choose a decorative pot with a 15cm opening at a minimum)
- Length (approx.): 35cm
