This plant is native to Central and Southern America and is in fact a type of cactus and the only cactus to be found outside of the Western Hemisphere. It is epiphytic meaning it would be found naturally growing on and around trees in the rainforest. Its scientific name is derived from the Ancient Greek word for "wickerwork," referencing the plant's form. This is a low maintenance and hardy plant making it perfect for both homes and offices.
Light conditions: indirect, bright light (for example not on a windowsill that gets direct sun at any point in the day). Can tolerate a couple of hours of morning and evening light.
Neediness: This is a low maintenance houseplant. It will benefit from occasionally dusting the leaves to unblock its pores and rotating to ensure even growth.
Watering: As it is a cactus it is sensitive to overwatering (the roots can rot if kept wet) so just water when the top layer of soil feels dry to the touch. Aim for moist but not soggy soil. This plant will let you know when it is thirsty because the leaves will lose their rigidity.
Ideal location: bedrooms, living rooms, studies, offices, bathrooms and kitchens
