Epiphyllum guatemalense monstrosa 'Curly Sue' - Cactus OrchidRegular price $18.00
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!
