Hatiora are a small genus of epiphytic cacti which belong to the tribe Rhipsalideae within the subfamily Cactoideae of the Cactaceae. Some Hatiora Species are well known and widely cultivated ornamentals, known as Easter cactus or Whitsun Cactus.
Hatiora are highly adaptable and can be grown well throughout Australia. They should receive bright, indirect sunlight. An east or west facing window area is ideal but avoid very hot positions. Outdoors under partially shaded conditions is fine but in the colder states, protection from winter frost is required so an shadehouse or indoor area is more appropriate.
We recommend fertilising your Hatiora once a fortnight in the warmer months and once a month through winter. We sell Fertiliser on our website and this can be diluted to create 1L of fertiliser.
All our Hatioras were originally sourced from the Adam's Jungle Cacti collection. Adam's Jungle Cacti was a small private collection of epiphitic plants, most of which originate from Central and South America, with a handful from Madagascar, Africa, Sri-Lanka, India, SE Asia etc.
