Light Instructions
Mistletoe Cactus grows best in a space with bright indirect light, where the sun rays are diffused, and can also adapt to spaces with medium to low light. Avoid placing it in spaces without natural light or with direct sunlight. Unlike most desert cacti, the Mistletoe Cactus is sensitive to direct sunlight and prefers a spot with medium to bright indirect light, where the sun rays are diffused. It can also adapt to lower light locations, though growth will certainly slow.

Mistletoe Cactus Care
Rotate your mistletoe cactus around 1/4 turn monthly to ensure even growth. Provide the plant with extra nutrition during its flourishing season (spring and summer). To prevent pest infestation, keep the cactus in a well-ventilated area. To ensure the healthy growth of your plant, make sure to keep an eye out for pesky Mealybugs and Scale that may inhabit its nooks and crannies. Look for white, cottony masses on stems, leaves, and branches, or small, crawling insects with segmented bodies and wipe them off with a damp cloth, spray with a mixture of water and dish soap, or use neem oil as a natural solution. Additionally, it's important to maintain a temperature above 10℃ (50℉) at all times.
