  THIS rainforest
cactus has been in the collection for a couple of years, a present from Maria, one of me neighbors.

Some readers may find strange these succulents could grown under  rainy conditions, but I assure you is not the only one.

Mine, to the right, decided to attach itself to
the concrete wall for support.  It was planted
under the Duranta repens, for the intense
shade and humidity, not found everywhere in our garden.

I did my research under rainforest cacti, finding
this and a few others under the botanical name.

that is that.
