Deamia Testudo Dog Tail Cactus

Deamia Testudo
Stock Number: 31466
Availability: In Stock
Family: Cactaceae
Cultural Code: what's this?

Does the price indicate the true rarity of this epiphytic Cactus? The easily grown "Dogtail Cactus" perfect for baskets as the ornately ribbed fat stem sections will create an impressive jumbled cascading curtain in time. But if given the chance to climb, however, this rain forest tropical becomes an agressive scandent tropical vine. Sent sometimes as very easily rooted unrooted cuttings in dry moss. If you can kill this, you deserve a distinguished medal from the International Brotherhood of the Brown Thumb.

Cultural Codes

Some of you grow only indoors, some only in terrariums; many of you have hobby greenhouses; while a growing number of customers live in subtropical or tropical areas of the world. These brief codes are an attempt to suggest whether or not a particular plant will do well in your particular conditions.

If an entry has the cluster HP CGH, this means normal house plant culture will be successful if the plant is given a cool CGH moist location; however if the entry has the cluster CGH HP, you would interpret this to suggest that while Cool Greenhouse conditions are needed for total success with this plant, House Plant conditions will be adequate, while not ideal. If the cluster is HH CGH you would interpret this to mean that while in Zone 8 or below this will be winter hardy outdoor, further north it will need considerable mulch, a cold frame, or a Cool Greenhouse to thrive. And so on.
