Curly Sue is a pure pot of joy! An epiphyte that has adapted to obtain the most light and moisture it can, the fleshy green stems of this plant twist and curl to give it the best advantage to survive. In the home however, Curly Sue appears to have gorgeous thick green locks that tend to maintain themselves. A well draining soil mix, a bright but indirect light and a soak when the soil dries out will keep this plant very happy. Epiphyllums are in the night flowering cacti family and will produce dramatic flowers on long stems that only open at night and if self pollinated will produce delicious fruit that looks and tastes just like a miniature dragon fruit!

All plants pictured are considered an accurate representation of the plant you will receive. It represents the rough size, colour and condition. These are plants however and due to changes in climatic conditions and plant variation there will be minor differences.

We are now adding in 'Transport risk' in the product description as some plants are more delicate than others and/or find transport stressful. We will rate in terms of Low, Medium or High risk and discuss specifically to the plant in question. If this information is not provided yet please feel free to reach out via email to ask. Please also note that if plants are sent with new leaves that haven't had the chance to harden off they are susceptible to physical damage in transit as the slightest touch can cause it. 

Please note that we use 'Bugs for Bugs' regularly as a preventative control measure for pests. These predatory bugs are administered in vermiculite. This vermiculite is sprinkles onto the leaves and sometimes remains. 

We know that sometimes it's hard to get an idea of the size of the plant your are purchasing. Photos can make plants look bigger than they actually are. That's why we've made it easy. In each listing you will notice a photo with a background with lines drawn. These lines are distanced 5cm away from each other and the photographs are taken straight on with products against the wall. These photos will be the best indicator of size.
