    Selenicereus chrysocardium, also known as Fernleaf Cactus or Epiphyllum chrysocardium, is a species of cactus native to Mexico. This species of cactus is distinct in that it does not grow upright, but instead, its delicate stems sprawl over a large area. This plant is an epiphyte, which means it grows on other plants and absorbs moisture from the atmosphere. Its stem is flat and hangs from or drapes on another plant. The leaves are long, narrow and green, and while it is capable of producing big white flowers, this is a very rare occurrence. When caring for Selenicereus chrysocardium, it is crucial to maintain the right balance between water, light, and nutrition. Over-watering should be avoided, and watering the plant once a week is generally sufficient, especially in temperate or humid climates. It's important to place the plant near a bright window for adequate indirect sunlight, as this light is essential for photosynthesis and producing food and nutrition. When using commercial fertilizers, care should be taken to avoid using fertilizers that are too strong, as these can result in fertilizer burn and cannot be easily watered down. It is recommended to keep the plant environment balanced by providing ample natural light, fresh air, and just the right amount of water. Selenicereus chrysocardium plants are rainforest cacti and do not thrive in arid and dry environments, so maintaining a certain degree of humidity is crucial. The soil should hold moisture and drain effectively without water accumulation at the bottom. When grown in a suitable environment, Selenicereus chrysocardium is a low-maintenance plant that does not require extensive management, as long as the basic needs of the plant are met. Keep in mind that it is important to maintain the right balance of moisture and light, as well as using the appropriate type of soil, to ensure that this delicate species of cactus thrives.

    "Came in perfect condition--thank you!"


    "Amazing Plants! I was so happy to see these way larger than the plants pictured because I know how slow most cycads grow."


    "This is the first time I've ever ordered plants online, so I had no idea what to expect. When I saw the description of 'comes in a 4" growers' pot' I figured I'd be getting some fairly small plants--nope! The bamboo palms were fully 2' tall from root to top leaf, and perfectly healthy. All 5 plants were VERY well secured in their box, to the point that the bottom layer was even spray-foamed to the cardboard! I couldn't ask for a better experience and I'm so excited to see these plants grow. Five stars!"


    "Thrilled with my purchase! This seller went above any beyond! The packaging was very careful, the plants are so much bigger than I expected, and I was given more than what was depicted in the item description. 10/10 all round!"


    "This is SO BEAUTIFUL! Packaging was perfect and efficient, plant was in excellent condition. I'm in love with this plant and I will definitely order more."
