CARE_
Lepismium houlletianum is a sub tropical trailing plant with paper thin foliage, perfect for hanging baskets. It is an epiphytic cactus, meaning it likes to grow onto a plant or tree but not in a harmful or parasitic way.  It is native to South American rainforests where it lives in the upper storeys of trees, receiving bright, semi shaded light. Typically, this plant doesn’t like extremes of heat nor cold and can be brought indoors for protection. Outdoors, place planter where it receives morning sun and afternoon shade, particularly in summer. It will happily grow indoors but take care to ensure that this plant does not receive direct light indoors after midday in summer. Place in a south facing position which is warm and bright. It prefers a richer soil than most succulents, some sand can be added for drainage, but select a premium potting or orchid mix. It doesn’t like to dry out so can be watered more than your average succulent.
