The Fern leaf cactus is a rare epiphyllic cactus native to Mexico where it can grow up to 1.8m wide. It has beautiful trailing stems holding pale leaves that have rounded lobes in zig-zag pattern. 12cm pot size available in the small plant collection.


These are are and unusal plants to find in the UK houseplant market that grown for mass production so they will have marks which is normal for plants grown by small specialist growers. 



Bright indirect sunlight or semi-shade (morning sun is ideal), avoid direct sun


Water regularly in spring and summer, let the compost dry out somewhat between waterings. Reduce to every 4 weeks in the winter.


 As an epiphyllic cactus it likes a light and airy compost as the roots need good airflow Aim to repot it every 2 to 3 years.


Feed every 3-4 weeks throughout the summer.
