Family: Cactaceae
Origin: Brazil
Groundcover and low-growing 2ftSmall shrub 2-5 ftShadeEpiphyteRegular waterOrnamental foliage

Hanging cactus, stems up to 18 inches long. The stems are spineless. The name Drunkards Dream refers to the fact that the segments are bottle shaped.

Small yellow flowers appear at the end of stems, from spring to early summer.

It tolerates the extreme heat provided that it is not exposed to direct sun, and when kept in an area that doesn't freeze, it doesn't seem to mind the cold weather too much. Grow this epiphyte in humus-rich soil in a humid atmosphere with filtered sun.
