Did you know...?
Described by us as quirky because of its zig zag leaves, this funky plant normally hangs out in rainforests so it would appreciate frequent waterings once the soil has dried out. Even though it has 'cactus' in its name, it doesn't like direct sun rays on its leaves; bright diffuse light is best for this chap as it would usually be sheltered from sun under a rainforest canopy. You might notice tiny hairs growing off its leaves; the hairs would be used to absorb moisture from the air in its natural habitat. If you notice these growing in the spring and summer, ensure you mist your plant a bit more regularly. Placing it in a naturally higher humidity room like a kitchen or bathroom could help keep your plant happy.
