Rhipsalis (Mistletoe Cactus)

Rhipsalisis a tropical succulent native to rainforests in warm regions. The grownup name for this is Rhipsalis mistletoe cactus.

Surprisingly, growing Rhipsalis requires shade to partial shade. While most cacti are found in hot, sunny, arid zones, mistletoe cactus is unique in its requirements for moisture and dim light. They prefer lightly moist, but not wet soil, but ensure they have ample time to dry out to avoid water buildup in the soil that can rot the roots. When it's thirsty; its tendrils will start to pucker and lose rigidity.

Plant available is approximately 18- 25 cm long and comes in 10 cm diameter black coloured plastic pot with wire hanger.
