An epiphytic member of the cactus family, this plant grows in the crooks of tree branches in the jungles of eastern Brazil. Given to us by our friends at the Tulsa Zoo, this interesting succulent has many little tube-like branchlets that resemble bottles, or in line with its common name, beer bottles. A little afternoon shade is appreciated in the Oklahoma summer for Drunkard’s Dream. We just position it on the east side of one of the larger succulents when we group them together outside. Sometimes called Dancing Bones, grow it in a container so it can be brought inside for winter. If it ever does produce its yellow flowers, give it a dry rest for about 3-4 weeks.
