The 'Beavertail' earned its name from its thick wiggly stems, you might also be interested in our Fishbone Cactus which has thinner, more prominent curves in its stems.
This funky plant is the perfect easy care addition to your windowsill collection.
Once the stems grow long enough, they will start to hang down under their own weight. You can thicken the plant out but cutting it back & propagating the stems - your plant will also branch out from wherever you cut it!
Light: Bright indirect light will promote the best growth. Older plants can withstand direct sunlight.
Water: Only water once the soil is completely dry then give a heavy water. When the leaves wrinkle, that's a sign that it's ready for watering.
Food: Not a requirement but if you choose to; use a light cacti fertiliser.
Humidity: Will thrive in a normal home humidity but will also tolerate dry air.
I have lots of quirky looking plants and this fits the bill. It could be described as a Christmas cactus on steroids. Healthy looking plant which is doing well in my home where I've placed it in bright but indirect sunlight.
