Former Epiphyllum sp. Red

The Disocactus ackermannii is an epiphytic type of plant which some call “orchid cactus” due to its large bright blooms and growth habit. It produces spectacular red flowers that last only a couple of days but can produce as early as winter and throughout the spring season. It’s considered an easy to grow plant that seems to grow best when neglected, and might be by far the best, most rewarding, maintenance free house and patio plant. It makes an excellent hanging basket plant with its stems growing from 18 to about 30 inches in length.
