Named for it's contorted growth habit and bottle-shaped segments, the Dancing Bones Cactus or Drunkard's Dream Cactus is a hardy cascading plant with small yellow cactus blossoms that turn into pink berries. It's a jungle cactus native to Brazil and can be found in the crooks of trees, requiring little soil to survive and tolerant of lower light making it an easy beginner's houseplant.


Prefers bright indirect light, but can also tolerate lower light levels. Protect from direct afternoon sun. This cactus is drought tolerant but as it is a jungle cactus it requires more water than other cacti but allow soil to drain thoroughly after watering.
