Growing
These plants are relatively easy to grow and can be taken outside in our northern climate they love it but it has to be done right! put them in the shade for a week then slowly introduce them to brighter slight over a couple of weeks
Do not allow them to freeze so bring them in before it freezes or that it is it!
How do you grow orchid cactus they all like lots of sun so bright to moderate sun. They don't like hot dry conditions in the house. They are like a Christmas cactus keep them on the cooler side and in a bright window. I fertilize periodically with 20-20-20  11-51-0 the first one for nice growth and the second for flowering. The red one flowers lots twice a year in spring and late to early fall so does the pink one.
Don't start really babying them when they are going to flower or are flowering. Light watering at this time but do allow to dry out heavy watering can cause the buds to fall off same with christmas cactus. In fact if you can grow one you can grow the other.

How big will they grow? I just came back from Miami Florida and I saw some growing in the trees that were 20 or more feet long they were not flowering but had grown right into the trunks of the trees. I am not sure when they flower there.

This pink orchid cactus is a hanging type and flowers a lots one very nice thing about it is the flower process takes a long time and you can enjoy the pink blossoms for about a week or more the flower is about 3 inches long when it is finished growing.  In this photo on the right see the pink bud that is at least a week to ten days away from the fully opened one. I don't think you should water them much when they flower. Watering can cause bud drop and premature wilting. I have lots of this one. One of my parent plants was about 4 feet long and would get about 50 flowers on it twice a year. Very good bloomer!
