Lepisium Bolivianum

Lepisium Bolivianum

Regular price £29.00 £0.00 Unit price per
Tax included.

This hanging (or sitting!) cactus is as unique as they come. It cascades its flattened and fleshy stems in its own way creating an interesting and very different house plant.

This plant will also not mind some neglect should you be the forgetful plant owner! It requires little water and doesn’t require direct sunlight, perfect for plant beginners. 

Pot size: 14cm

Length: 40cm

Care advice and additional information

Water - Water only when the soil is totally dry, then water throughly ensuring excess water is able to drain away completely. Don’t allow the plant to stand for too long in water to prevent root rot but equally don’t allow to be dry for too long either.

Sunlight - Position in a bright room away from direct sunlight and not in a very shaded area either. 

Feeding - Feed once a month during spring and summer months only. 

Toxicity - Safe for pets.


All plants come in a plastic nursery pot, wrapped in Kraft compostable paper, secured with twine and include a plant care card and a seeded paper thank you tag that can be planted to grow wildflowers!
