Oasis in the Desert - Rhipsalis in Cholla Wood - Pistils Nursery

Oasis in the Desert

$ 15.00

To create these dynamic pieces, we've tucked our favorite Rhipsalis and Hatiora species into the pockets of dried Cholla wood, making a "potted" plant entirely from natural materials. Rhipsalis and Hatiora are genera of epiphytic jungle cacti, tolerant of lower light and more moisture than their desert counterparts. Cholla, on the other-hand, is a desert cactus native the Southwestern US that leaves behind a unique hollow, porous wood. Combined, the result is our Oasis in the Desert: vibrant free-standing mounts that mimic the way jungle cacti grow in the crooks of tree branches in their natural habitats. Since Jungle Cacti are so easy to care for, these versatile pieces can add a pop of green to just about anywhere in your space. 

Care is simple. Place the piece where it will receive low to bright indirect light, and water when the moss at base of plant is dry by soaking in the sink for about 5 minutes.

Small: 2-3" tall Cholla piece
Medium: 3.5-4.5" tall Cholla piece
Large: 5-6" tall Cholla piece

Includes details care instructions. Each piece is made to order and sold separately; natural variation in plant and Cholla appearance is to be expected.
