Disocactus comes from the Greek word “dis” meaning “twice” or “double.” This genus was named because the outer and inner flower segments are the same length. It has long cylindrical spiny stems, flattened-leaf, and narrow tubular flowers. Disocactus is native to Central and Southern America, Mexico, and the Caribbean Islands.
