Though seen here trailing on the ground, this cactus is ideal for hanging baskets. Bright pink/red flowers are produced randomly along the stems. This species will not tolerate any frost, but does very well outdoors in the summer , but needs to be protected from full noon sun. The name ‘Aporocactus’ comes from the Greek for “Cactus that is not penetrable”.
