6" Curly Orchid Cactus (Epiphyllum Guatemalense Monstrose)

$29.99

Caring for the Curly Orchid Cactus (Epiphyllum guatemalense monstrose) is relatively straightforward. Here are care instructions:

1. Light Requirements:
   - Indirect Light: Provide bright, indirect light. Avoid direct afternoon sunlight, as it can scorch the leaves.

2. Watering:
   - Moderate Watering: Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil feels dry. Allow excess water to drain away, as the plant doesn’t like sitting in water.
   - Reduce in Winter: During the winter months, reduce watering frequency as the plant's growth slows down.

3. Soil:
   - Well-Draining Mix: Use a well-draining cactus or succulent potting mix. A mix that includes perlite or coarse sand helps to improve drainage.

4. Temperature:
   - Warm Temperatures: Keep temperatures between 65-80°F (18-27°C) during the active growing season.
   - Cooler Winter Temperatures: In winter, the plant can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures, ideally between 50-60°F (10-15°C).

5. Fertilizing:
   - Fertilize Sparingly: Feed with a balanced, diluted liquid fertilizer every 4-6 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer).
   - **No Fertilizing in Winter**: Avoid fertilizing during fall and winter when the plant is resting.

6. Humidity:
   - Average Humidity: Curly Orchid Cactus can tolerate average indoor humidity levels. It doesn’t require high humidity but benefits from regular misting in dry conditions.

7. Pruning:
   - Minimal Pruning: Trim back any leggy or unhealthy growth to maintain the plant’s shape and encourage bushier growth.

8. Support:
   - Provide Support: As the plant grows, provide a trellis or support structure to help it climb or cascade, depending on its growth habit.

9. Propagation:
   - Easy Propagation: Propagate from stem cuttings. Allow cuttings to callus for a few days, then plant in a well-draining potting mix. Keep the soil lightly moist until roots develop.

10. Pest Management:
    - Monitor for Pests: Watch for common pests like spider mites and aphids. Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

By following these simple care instructions, you can enjoy the unique and beautiful growth of your Curly Orchid Cactus, adding a delightful touch to your indoor garden.
