Description

As houseplants, moon cacti are typically mutants that do not produce chlorophyll, which is why they have such vivid colors—from hot pink to neon yellow. Due to this lack of chlorophyll, they must be grafted onto a rootstock cactus to survive. The moon cactus is most commonly grafted with dragon fruit, but it can be combined with a green cactus of any species.

This plant is pet and children safe.

Care Guide

The upper red portion, the scion, can't live on its own due to its lack of chlorophyll, so caring for this succulent requires consideration of both the rootstock and the scion. Intolerant to bright sunlight and colder temperatures, it is best placed in shaded spots. If the rootstock begins growing another branch, immediately prune it, as the scion will lose nutrients. It requires minimal water and well draining soil to thrive.
