These ideal houseplants make for a magnificent focal point in any brightly lit interior, adding that little extra spark with its lush deep green flat foliage.

Lepismium Bolivianum is found growing epiphytically in rock and tree crevices throughout the Bolivian Forests, hence one of its common names being Forest Cactus. These beautiful plants have a stunning trailing nature, cascading gracefully over the edge of their pots, making them ideal hanging basket plants or can look glorious flowing off a shelf.

The Pfeiffera Boliviana loves bright indirect light to thrive but direct sunlight will scorch your plant's foliage, leaving it unhappy and looking less than stellar. Yet, when provided with optimal conditions of even moisture and good airflow, these spectacular specimens will reward you with pink white blooms along their flat slender foliage adding to their appeal.

These highly sought after plants with their easy-care nature make excellent beginner plants or perfect any indoor plant enthusiast looking for something a little different. Where ever you choose to display this magnificent plant be it at home or in the office, it will truly make a statement.

Please note: These gorgeous plants are sadly toxic to pets.
