The Hatiora salicornioides is a unique, decorative houseplant native to South America. It’s an epiphytic cactus-like Rhipsalis, which means it can grow on other plants. Common names for Hatiora salicornioides include Dancing Bones Cactus, Drunkard’s Dream, Spice Cactus and Bottle Cactus. Hatiora can reach up to 20″ inches in height. It’s a compact, bushy little plant. The contorted foliage resemble coral, as they branch out in several jointed stems. The foliage is deep green in color. The growth is also succulent, helping to retain moisture that it obtains through dew and rain, instead of soaking the water from the roots. The flowers may appear at any time during the spring, from March to May. They grow from the tips of the shoots. The small yellow flowers have no scent and aren’t very showy. They just add a splash of color to the tips of the bushy plant.
