This beautiful plant is called Hatiora salicornioides. It is a succulent and a epiphyte. Epiphytes are plants that live in treetops. Examples of them are: epiphytic ferns, cacti, bromeliads, orchids, mosses, lichens, ant plants, lycopodiums, ficus, or anything else that grows in trees! I am doing this post for a couple of reasons. First I love this plant and it is in full bloom now and second I really enjoy the blog The Rainforest Garden. He talks about awesome stuff that is really helpful to any gardner. He has a contest right now called Epiphyte day! I hope to win some cuttings from him. So wish me some luck! What's funny is that I was about to do a post on it anyway!
This is the entire plant. The front has a few different kinds of echeveria's. I usually put this pot outside in a corner by the sliding glass door. This plant faces the wall and it seems to be perfect for it. So the only time I get to enjoy it is in the winter.
Look at all the pretty blooms. Looks like yellow stars!
I took this shot last year I think! Just a single bloom. Didn't know I had aphids till I saw this on the computer! So funny! Everybody have a great week!
