|Full Description: Jungle Cactus species Hylocereus stenopterus is native to Costa Rica, this species of Hylocereus is unusual in that the blooms are purple-reddish in color, Same care as the other Hylocereus but as it has thinner stem skin or epidermis should damage reach the xylem it can result in dried out or dead stems, so it needs more winter cold protection, stem damage usually occurs below 50 deg. for prolonged periods, especially on new even more tender tip growth. Easy to grow though in warm conditions, grows very fast at 80 degrees or more.|
NOTE; Roots on this variety tend to be weaker than similar looking Hylocereus species. Three angled stems are also very thin especially on new growth giving little insulation from cool winds/weather. Grows very fast if temps are above 80 deg. you just need to place in a well protected area in winter if your temps drop below 50 deg. day or evening. Treat as a houseplant in a well lighted area if necessary.
