Oh you Poor Poor Mistletoe Cactus! I Know the person who had you before now was no longer able to care for you , water you. and trim you back when needed ... But your hear now.
But should I cut and re start you in your currant condition , or should I water and fertilize you now and see if i can get you through the last of winter before cutting and re potting??
So meet My latest plant in need of a serious rescue
this is ( to the best of my Knowledge )
aka: Mistletoe Cactus
and obviously a very old one.
apparently these are a rare cactus, or at least that's what i was told, but more research is needed as i have had little experience with this particular plant
I'll bet it was gorgeous in it's day
but now just needs to have a lot of stuff cut away
I think it is more like a succulent than a cactus but i need to check.
it obviously has a hanging nature.
wonder if i should put cactus soil substrate i it's pot or should i include some decaying woods and leaves as this is suppose to grow in trees .
I think i want to do alot more research before i make a mistake of hacking it up to do new plant starts..
hummm ok off to looking up what i can find on this baby.
Any Help any one can give on this would be seriously appreciated .
and I will update this post as I learn more
