Common name – Moon Cactus, Lollypop Cactus, Plaid Cactus
This is a grafted cactus. Grafting is done to keep the top colourful one alive. It wouldn’t be able to survive on its own since there is no chlorophyll. The bottom one has the chlorophyll and the roots to keep the top portion going. One would think since it is a cactus it will grow in harsh sunlight. But that will only cause the plant to burn. Sunlight is essential but only in the morning or the evening hours. Mild watering is required.
