Lepismium cruciforme is an epiphytic or saxicolous cactus with long, flat, thick segmented stems that often have short tufts of white hair along the margins. The stems are normally green, but will blush a pink to deep magenta when environmentally stressed. Small white or cream flowers adorn the edges of the stems in spring.
Plant your Lepismium cruciforme in a well draining organic mix, such as peat with bark and perlite, and position in an area with filtered light. Keep moist, but not wet.
