Despite appearances, Selenicereus chrysocardium is indeed a cactus! The long stems of this epiphytic species are broad, flat, and deeply crenated, giving it a superficial resemblance to a fern. It is a cousin to the more common rick rack cactus (S. anthonyanus), but S. chrysocardium grows much larger, with stems up to 12 inches wide! The species name, chrysocardium, means "golden heart" and is named for the dense cluster of golden stamens at the center of its enormous white (and very fragrant) flowers. This tropical cactus will grow best in bright, dappled light and with a little extra humidity.

Care

  • Sunlight: Bright indirect or dappled sunlight
  • Temperature: 45°-100° (70°-75° preferred)
  • Water: Allow soil to dry out between waterings
  • Size: stems pendant up to several feet long, 12" wide
