Watering- While these are technically cacti, they are naturally found in forests and prefer more water than their arid relatives. We recommend keeping the soil moist but not soggy and to water when the top 1/3 of the pot is dry. Don't allow your cactus to fully dry between waterings. If you're unsure of when to water a moisture meter helps to take the guess work out of your watering schedule!
Sunlight- These plants do best in bright, indirect light. We also recommend a few hours of direct morning sun in order to promote flowering. However, orchid cactus are intolerant to hot direct sun and should never be allowed to sit in harsh mid day sun. An east facing window would be a great place for this beautiful cactus.
Soil- Orchid Cactus are most commonly found growing on trees in the wild and have some unique growing requirements because of this. They do not need a lot of soil, however they do need soil that is light, well aerated and stays somewhat moist. We recommend a mix that contains coco coir and perlite.
Pet Friendly- Yes!
