ADD A BEAUTIFUL FITTED POT (OPTIONAL)
This hanging houseplant is super stylish and we love its 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!
We’re the people to come to for trailing indoor plants (UK) and Forest Cactus is a great style plant that would also make a wonderful indoor plant gift! We’ll include a free, handwritten card if you leave your gift message at the basket stage of checkout.
