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. 


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 small Cade pot would be an ideal choice. If using as a dramatic table top or bench top plant Monkey Tail's look spectacular in any of our Lightly pot range - we have photographed this Monkey Tail in a Tone Planter in the stunning Lilac/Sorrel colour combination.  

** Please note all of our plants are hand selected for their quality and individual character. The Monkey Tail cactus you receive may not be the exact one pictured but it will be of equal quality.
