I have no clue what kind of cactus she is- any ideas?
1ft to light, indirect
5” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 week ago
Whoa cool! @kscape is the Greg go-to for cactus and succulent identification πŸ€—
But I’m going to take a shot at this
It looks like a Peanut Cactus. Is that right @kscape ?
@ABCD ohhh interesting! I didn’t even think of that. I was thinking monkey tail but it doesn’t have the β€œfuzzy” look like the big ones do. This is a mother plant and has lots of babies that fall off!
@AspiringPlants Would you say it looks like a Peanut Cactus?
Yeah I would say so! These were some of the babies, and I think it does resemble the peanut cactus :)
@AspiringPlants @ABCD looks like a Disocactus flagelliformis or rat’s tail cactus. I’m currently out but will keep updating :)
@kscape I tried πŸ«£β€¦I just don’t get succulents. They all look so alike and they’re infamous for not needing water but I underwater mine and they’re so slow growing (is it dead? Is it unhappy?) and…
@ABCD Succulents and Cactuses are very similar. Sometimes the only way to differentiate is either growth patterns, flowers (which is somewhat rare to see flowered succulents already in households) or leaf shape.

It’s a challenge and makes my brain hurt trying to figure out, but it does get me to research and whatnot! πŸͺ΄πŸŒ΅πŸ’š

Also, they love sun and very little water *sometimes*. I just pay attention to the leaves and let them tell me if they need watering or not 😊πŸͺ΄
Looks like a rat tail or monkey tail lol can't remember the name
It is a rat tail cactus. 🌡
