Hildewintera Colademononis, Monkey Tails botanical name, belongs to the cactus family and its origin can be traced back to the Bolivian countryside in Santa Cruz. It is of epilithic nature, meaning in its natural habitat it is most commonly found growing on or between steep rocks hanging above a jungle below.
A single plant can have three to five stems, which branch at the bottom. The plant grows upright for up to 15 - 20cm's then the stems become heavy and droop. They produce beautiful bright red flowers that bloom for a few days then turn to fruits with a brief life span.
Ideally and outdoor plant as they love the intense sunlight only the great outdoors gets. If growing indoors it will need the sunniest brightest spot in your home. A Monkey Tail cactus will grow roughly 20-30cm yearly outdoors, significantly less if grown indoors.
Like all cactus they are drought tolerant so water only when the soil is dry. A minimal amount of watering is required over winter during their dormant period.
WE RECOMMEND POTTING INTO..
Be prepared for your Monkey Tail cactus to be a hanging plant therefore think ahead and plant into a hanging basket or tall upright planter. If using a hanging pot a little Hanging Planter would be an ideal choice. If using bench top plant these Monkey Tails look cute as a button in a small Gro-Pot.
