Hi all,

I really just registered to find out what is happening with my cactus, but perhaps once I know more I'll get deeper into. This one lives in a small flat in rainy London (poor thing) and was doing just fine for years when suddenly it grew a lot and then these long tentacles came out. This started a few months ago.

So, which cactus is this and why the tenctacles? Is it a disease or completely normal. Should I do anything? I couldn't upload an image so the I used my profile image instead - that's the cactus I'm talking about...

All help and suggestions appreciated!

thanks,
Sip

Hi Sip,

this looks like a hylocereus (undatus?) that is growing.
The tentacles are normal air roots.
You should give the plant a bigger pot, more light and good draining soil.
Then it could grow 1 meter or more in a growing season. affraid
