Origin and habitat: Mexico: Hidalgo.
Disocactus flagelliformis “Rat Tail” has been cultivated as a houseplant for nearly 300 years. It is one of the most popular of cacti for its ubiquity in modern collections and home use. The 'Rat's Tail' is also very free-flowering, and its long, slender stems bear multitudes of crimson-pink blooms and makes a good hanging plant. A larger specimen can be quite impressive, tumbling out of a pot, suggesting a waterfall. It is said that it deserves first place among the Cacti of easy culture.
Flowers: Diurnal, borne laterally, red to purplish-pink usually 5-8(-10) cm long.
