Full Description: Species WEBEROCEREUS BRADEI Has a white nocturnal bloom and wide flat stems with small hair like spines on stems-averaging 6" to 8" (15.24cm to 20.32cm) wide but average only 1/4" to 3/8" (6.35mm to .9525cm) thick sort of resembling Opuntia pads in stem growth but there are no spines on the face and back of stems but instead are smooth, stem edges do have small hairlike spines at aeriole points. Growth is flat basket type growth and semi-pendulous. The blooms are small and white with some light yellowish to off-white tones in back petals, Flowers average 2" to 3" (5.08 to 7.62cm) in diameter, with very short flower tubes only extending on average 1" to 1-1/2" (2.54cm to 3.81cm) long.

Weberocereus bradei is a jungle cacti that is native to Costa Rica. First discoved and then published in 1913 it is still very rare in its native habitat and in collections, so seldom seen.

Growing culture/care;
Weberocereus bradei Likes rich well draining soil and some shade simular to hybrid Epiphyllums, a hanging basket is best as smaller new growth can be upright/errect but later becomes pendant as more segments grow from the stem tips. It can also be easily trained/trellissed. Weberocereus bradei is easy to grow rare jungle cacti, but it does likes warm weather (heat) and like many species can show distress below 50 deg.F so if you give adaquate protection in winter it will thrive. Growth is very fast June thru Sept. at 80-90+ deg. average temp.

Blooming; Weberocereus bradei like most jungle cacti species blooms later in the season than hybrid Epiphyllums, blooming from July to Sept.

Offered as unrooted cuttings 10-12" long. Also available as larger rooted plants within the US only for mail order or pick-up at Epicacti Nursery

PLEASE NOTE; THE PLANTS OR CUTTINGS OFFERED HERE CAME ORIGONALLY FROM A VERY OLD COLLECTION AND WERE GARDEN CULTIVATED AND WERE NOT REMOVED FROM THERE NATIVE HABITAT.
