Lepismium Cruciforme, commonly known as the Crucifix Orchid Cactus or Jungle Cactus, is a beautiful epiphytic cactus native to the rainforests of Brazil. It belongs to the Cactaceae family and is characterized by its long, arching stems with flattened, cruciform-shaped segments that give it a unique appearance.

Light: Crucifix Orchid Cacti prefer bright, indirect light. Avoid exposing them to direct sunlight, especially during the hottest hours of the day, as it can lead to sunburn. They can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures at night, but it's essential to keep them away from drafts and extreme temperature fluctuations.

Water: As an epiphytic cactus, Lepismium cruciforme requires moderate watering. Allow the top inch or two of the soil to dry out before watering again. During the growing season (spring and summer), water more frequently, but in winter, reduce watering to avoid overwatering and root rot.


Pot size: 30cm

Went to Urban Tropicana for the first
time on Friday 04/02/2022 after following their Instagram and Facebook page for a while. Seeing posts of their beautiful plants made me want to visit. I wasn’t disappointed, they have a great array of amazing plants at great prices. Staff were super welcoming and friendly straight away. Giving advice and tips on what would work best in my home with the light it gets, and also on how to care for the plants I purchased from them.I will definitely be going back again for more
plants to fill my home. I highly recommend them. 🌱🌴🌿  🌵
