Monkey Tail Cactus

The soft monkey tail cactus, scientifically known as Cleistocactus colademononis (previously Hildewintera colademononis), is a distinctive cactus plant with long cascading stems adorned with white, hair-like spines. Its common name "monkey tail cactus" comes from its resemblance to a monkey's tail. In spring and early summer, the plant produces bright red flowers that add a burst of color to any room.

This cactus is native to the rocky terrain of Santa Cruz, Bolivia, and can thrive in similar conditions as a houseplant. It's an excellent choice for those who want to add a touch of natural charm to their indoor space, and it grows well in hanging baskets, where its stems can trail and grow freely. Each year, its stems can grow up to a foot in length, creating a striking display. The soft monkey tail cactus is easy to care for and can tolerate dry conditions, making it a low-maintenance addition to any plant collection.
