Epiphyllum guatemalense

1 Starter Plant - 3" Long - Ship in 3" Pot

Curly Locks

(Epiphyllum guatemalense var monstrose)

Also known as Curly Sue and Curly Kai this rare South American jungle epi is a natural mutated sport found on a straight stemmed mother plant.

A little smaller than most, the unusual cactus has rich green, flat leaves that twist and curl like the arms of an octopus.

Flowering only when rootbound, the small pink buds open into spidery 3 inch white blooms which then give way to juicy, edible red berries. Self pollinating.

Needs a well-drained soil, dappled, bright light, regular watering/balanced fertilizer until winter. Switch to a blooming fertilizer and less water about February.

Frequently Asked Questions

I got a notification that my order was shipped, but it says pre-transit. When will it ship?

Orders say "shipped" when we print out labels for shipping, but please give it about 1-2 weeks to process and actually ship to you. This timeframe is only an estimate that allows us to care and ready the plant for shipping and for actual shipping time. Thank you for understanding during these hard times.

My plant came in but it is not in good condition! What should I do?

Sorry we cannot guarantee live plant during transit due to many factors.
If it arrived in bad shape, we'll refund or send a replacement but you need to let us know within 5 business days with some pics for us to claim insurance.
