PLANT BACKGROUND

Hailing from South America, Bolivia and Argentina, this compact epiphytic cactus features spiny growth with small white tufts along the spines. These tufts turn into an array of bright orange flowers which are followed by small, round waxy fruits (orange or pink) that adorn the plant for months after.

Care includes regular watering and sufficient light. For light, simply place the plant somewhere it can get lots of bright light and if you want flowers, allow it a few hours of direct morning sun each day

DISPLAY & INSTALLATION
Mossballs can be installed in two ways: 

-- Suspended: All of our Mossballs come with free extra cord and a carabiner.
Install a U-Shaped hook, attach the cord with carabiner, and simply clip in your mossball.

-- Standing: For a standing installation, simply place your Mossball within a presentation-dish on whichever surface you like.
