The Drunkards Dream is a trailing leafless cactus that grows in the angles of tree branches and on rock ledges in Brazil.
|Size||Up to 60cm|
|Light Strength||Partial Shade|
This Drunkards Dream is an epiphytic (tree dwelling) succulent leafless cactus which is made up of branched stems consisting of smaller segments. These segments resemble a bottle shape which may give to its common name; it’s also known as Dancing Bones Cactus. This olive green plant will sprout bell shaped yellow to orange flowers from the tips of the stems when in bloom. Shortly after flowering, small white fruit forms.
The Drunkards Dream ideally needs to be planted high so it can trail down. If planted near the ground, ensure the soil has good drainage to prevent the roots from rotting. Keep out of direct heat and bright light as they require shading, otherwise the stems will fall. Drunkard Dream is tolerant to drought and should be watered when the base has dried out. This plant can be placed in either an arid or forest setup providing the ground isn’t too wet.
