Lovely colour.Are they also called forest cactus?

I've never heard them called that before, but it could be because they would never survive outdoors in the UK.....

I am not so sure but I heard it somewhere.

Camillia:

Maybe it's called forest cactus because it's native the the rain forest of South America?

Thanks Delonix! That's the answer then as well.
