Mistletoe cacti are epiphytic, which means they attach themselves to other plants, and hang down in long trestles – much like wild mistletoe! They do, however, do well in hanging pots with good, well-draining soil. For you interior designers, they can be hung over garden arches, shelves, or even balustrades if you’re ambitious! They need minimal water, especially in hanging pots, and enjoy a fair bit of light. If you wish to attach these to a tree, you can, as they are not parasitic and do not harm the plant in any way.
