Epiphyllum guatemalense monstrose, Curly Locks Orchid Cactus
Unlike most epiphyllums which have relatively flat, smooth branches, the branches of Epiphyllum guatemalense monstrose twist and curl like a ribbon in the wind. This provides a unique and interesting difference between the Curly Locks (AKA Curly Sue) Orchid Cactus and other varieties. The twisting branches tend drape over the side of the pot making this an ideal hanging plant. Small white flowers emerge from pink buds during flowering season, but the real star of this plant's show are the curling branches.
Easy to care for, Epiphyllum guatemalense monstrose can tolerate a missed watering without issue.
