The Mistletoe Cactus, also known as the Spaghetti Cactus, is an impressive epiphytic plant that can thrive in a hanging basket with soil, much like any other succulent. This tropical cactus produces long, rope-like branches with bright green fleshy stems adorned with darker nodes down each stem.

During its blooming season, this remarkable cactus develops stunning creamy-pink flowers along its stems. A thriving plant can produce an abundance of flowers, creating an awe-inspiring, perfumed display.

Mature Mistletoe Cacti can reach impressive lengths of up to 9 meters, making them difficult to accommodate in most gardens. However, they can be kept in hanging baskets with trimmed stems, which can add an exotic and unique touch to any indoor or outdoor space.

This tropical plant thrives during the summer growing season, and is native to Central and South America, as well as the Caribbean. To mimic its natural habitat, it prefers a full to partial shade positioning, similar to the understory of rainforests.

As an epiphyte, the Mistletoe Cactus should not be overwatered. It requires a sandy potting mix in a well-draining hanging basket, and should be watered sparingly. It’s essential to allow the soil to dry out entirely before giving the plant a good soak.

In summary, the Mistletoe Cactus, or Spaghetti Cactus, is a visually striking plant that produces a curtain of lush green, ropey stems. Its hundreds of little blooms and round seed pods form down the stems during its blooming season, making it a remarkable addition to any collection of succulents.
