Lepismium is a group of highly branching epiphytic cacti. They are native to Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina. Lepismium (especially Lepismium bolivianum) are ornamental plants because of there long stems. Flowers are rather small, usually in the collors white or pink. The plants grow well in an Epiphyllum soil mix or regular cactus soil with some perlite and peat added. Lepismium requires shade and regular waterings when kept warm and when the plant is growing. Winter temperatures must remain above 13 °C.
