Ideal for: Indoors/Outdoors

Light: Strong indirect and/or filtered light, some direct light okay

Water: Spray or dunk twice a week, allow to dry within 6-8 hours.  Soak for up to 4 hours as necessary to rehydrate during hotter and drier months

 

This is a truly unique specimen that will be hard to come by again.  Cresting is a genetic mutation that causes horizontal growth along the meristem and dense stacking of leaves in what appears to be a braided fashion.  This is a well established specimen, you will receive what is in the picture
