Botanical name: Disocactus x hybridus    Family: Cactaceae (Cactus family)

Red Hybrid Orchid Cactus is a hybrid between Disocactus phyllanthoides and Disocactus speciosus. It is perhaps the most commonly grown orchid cactus and seems to survive and flower under most conditions. The stems are flat to triangular, often quite thick and succulent. The flowers are large, showy, bright red, more or less funnel shaped. Flowers are fragrant too. The stigma lobes are white, never lavender.

Photographed in Munnar, Kerala.
