This hanging houseplant is super stylish and we love it’s unusual looks!
Lepismium Bolivianum really gives that rainforest feeling and is ideal as part of your forest bathing collection. It’s a pretty unusual cactus because it doesn’t have a rigid spine. You’re probably used to thinking of cacti as upright and rigid - but this one just goes to show that they aren’t all like that!
Have it tumbling from a hanging basket or vigorously cascading from a pot on top of a dresser or table. Perched on a low shelf it will really bring the tropics to your rooms with its dark emerald leaves and de-stressing feel. Bring a bit of wild into your home! It’s relaxing just looking at the foliage which hangs from the pot giving such a free, abstract look.
If you’re looking for a trailing houseplant with bags of style and lots of impact at a reasonable price then this fits the bill - it’s a relatively cheap houseplant and gives so much back in chic!
Forest Cactus a native of the Bolivian jungle and the leaves are made up of flat stems - making the mad, crazy trailing habit of this wonderful cactus. It can grow up to a metre long so it’s a fast grower and really dramatic in terms of impact in a room! A real forest curtain!
