DESCRIPTION

Disocatus nelsonii is an epiphytic trailing cactus with gorgeous, showy pink flowers in spring and summer. An easy plant to grow, it preferes filtered light and an organic, well draining loose substrate. Disocactus nelsonii is an easy care ephiphytic cactus, with long flattened stems that can reach 1.5m or more in length. Stems are green but can turn a reddish colour in bright light or when stressed.

Like many in the Disocactus genus, Disocactus nelsonii has very showy blooms. Pink to purple funnel shaped flowers, up to 10cm, will bloom in spring to summer.

Disocactus grow best in a position of filtered light. They do not like full sun. Plant in a well draining organic mix, such as an orchid mix and water when the soil is starting to dry out. They do not like to be over-watered.
