Pereskia grandifolia is a cactus, although it would not seem to be the growth of leaf to this succulent.
This unusual succulent is not very known and usually only found in botanical gardens.
The Pereskia is a Brazilian cactus, which can grow up to 7 meters high.
However, as a kuiplant, you can easily keep this slow growing plant in check by pruning.
Also, the Pereskia grandifolia like most succulents is very drought-resistant.

The elongated leaves are thick and fleshy, fresh green in color and are 5 to 20 cm long. A pair of black straight spikes are 1 to 3 cm tall in the leaf spoons.
The leaves are used in Brazil in salads or cooked.
This particular cactus blossoms almost all year when it's above 18ºC and likes to be in full sun to half shade.

She blossoms with big pink / red flowers that grow up to 7 cm.
In the border around the middle of the flower are many bright yellow stamen and white stamps in the middle.
The flowers appear are clusters and the bloom is very exuberant.
After flowering, fruits appear pear-shaped to triangular and grow in the stem.
When they turn yellow to red they are ripe. These fruits are edible and smell good.

If you overwhelm the plant then do not or hardly water (keep dry).
In the hot season, the Pereskia grandifolia may get water and moisture is good for better growth.
Winter hardness zone 11 (+ 4ºC).
