The Orchid Cactus aka ‘Curly Locks’ are wonderful plants for hanging basket and make quite the conversation piece with their twisted, arching limbs.

The biggest danger to the OC is overwatering. The cactus needs to have moist roots at all times but they should not be sitting in a dish of water. Make sure the top 1/3 of the soil is dry before watering. They enjoy bright, dappled light but should be protected from direct midday sunlight. Morning sun is preferable with indirect light the rest of the way.

Pot Size: 12cm
