  • Aporocactus Flagelliformis - Mini Rat's Tail Cactus, native to Mexico, is a unique succulent. It is distinctive for its long, trailing stems, fine spines that grow to 6 feet in length at maturity. The overall color of the plant is green when young but the stems age to almost beige color.

    Pink, crimson to red, abundant, fragrant, and attractive to hummingbirds and pollinators.

    All of the plants will be shipped bare root.
  • Full sun to partial shade.

    Water generously during the active growth period and very sparingly during the rest period.

    Porous and well-drained cactus mix.
  • USDA Zone from 9b: -3.8 °C (25 °F) to 11: 4.5 °C (40 °F)
  • Your plant will be meticulously bubblewrapped and shipped in a sturdy box. Most of the plants will be shipped bare-root to ensure their safety.

    *** The size options are represtentative of pots that the plants come in. Sometimes customer may receive multiple plants instead of a large one to make up size.

    *** All of our packages are sterilized before leaving the door.
  • We only ship out beautiful, healthy plants! Please track your package and open it immediately upon arrival. If you receive your package and are not satisfied, please message us immediately. Fragile plants such as bearpaw, baby toe, etc. may break or loose a few of their leaves during transport. Please contact us for replacements if your plants are severely damaged. We'll try our best to accommodate you. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.

Mini Rat’s Tail Cactus

It must’ve gotten tossed around a lot during shipment. Once I cleaned it up, it was so cute. It’s even grown some. Great little plant.
