Orchid Cactus - Epiphyllum hybrid - 2L / 17cm / Medium

$20.00


Shipping Notice: These are very fragile and segments may be likely to snap off in transit. Let the wound dry for a week or two then place the segment back into the soil and secure it to stay still, the segment will grow roots and begin growing again.

Shape/Form Notice: The way these are propagated from cuttings means they are 'rough around the edges' and due to how they grow (initially upright, gradually becoming pendulous) means the lower sections WILL have to be pruned back to fit into the packaging.

Ideal for Beginner plant keepers or beyond.

Light Requirements: Bright Indirect Light is ideal

Moisture & Soil Requirements: This plant stores water in leaves and stems so prefers light waterings, evenly moist soil with good drainage in warm seasons - never soggy soil and does not like to dry out completely for long periods. Water when the container feels light or even when the top half of the soil is dry. Prefers small containers, likes to be kept a little drier through winter.

Growth & Nutrients: Epiphytic (grows on other plants) in nature so has a small root system, low water requirements and small size. Suits apartments or homes of any size. Feed with a general-purpose fertiliser for containers from the start of spring each year to autumn when growth slows down.

Temperature, Humidity & Ambient requirements: Prefers warm environments inside and adaptable for nearly any situation, tolerates a range of humidity levels.

Toxicity: Non-toxic to pets and people... but don't eat it, weirdo.

Plant Size Guide

The plant in the photos is an example and an approximate guide only however we try to show an average sized example. Sizes, flowering state and colours change throughout the seasons and variation will occur. In summer & autumn, plants are often larger or the same size as than the example picture but around winter and spring, they can be a little smaller but still at a size similar to the example. We aim to update the pictures to reflect significant differences.

Plant Heights - because the plant's foliage must fit inside our Plant Cartons, the actual height of a plant's central trunk (meristem) will be shorter than the box it fits in.

Small Plants - 14cm wide nursery pot - 1 Litre volume - Plants fit in a 50cm tall box.

Medium Plants -  17cm wide pots either 2L hanging pot or 2.5L nursery pot - Plants fit in a 75cm tall box.

Large Plants - 25cm wide pot, 10L volume. Plants fit in a 100cm tall box.

XL Plants - Plants over 100cm tall in pot sizes specified, 25cm/10L or greater and are hand delivered within Auckland/Northland only.

Plants in Transit

Each Small, Medium & Large plant is individually contained within its own protective cardboard Plant Carton which may be joined to other cartons in your order.

Plants typically take just a day or two to arrive, however they are usually fine in their cartons for 1-2 weeks, and many can go longer, so a few extra days are not usually cause for concern.

Whether it takes 1 or 7 days, let your plant recover from its journey by placing in gentle light and adding a little water and it will be back to its best within a couple of days. Let us know if there are any major issues via the contact page.

Lovely plant but unfortunately our local Aramex delivery courier is quite hectic at times! They were ruff and damaged the plant. Opened it up to see a beautiful part of the plant broken off which had new growth coming off the ends so super guttered about that.

Love your company but just let down by the courier this time round.

Far Bigger than I Imagined

I was blown away at how huge the plant was when it arrived. Based on Planthouses photo's, I was expecting a much smaller plant, something that resembled their second picture lol. For the review photo, I placed the plant in an 80cm tall stand. Hopefully you get the gist of its size. Has grown even more a month on. Produced two nice sized stems and way to many new growth points to count. Thank you Planthouse. I love my orchid cactus. It's such a unique and gorgeous thing. A good price and definitely worth a recommend.
