The colours are incredible, this hanging plant is so striking and impressive.
The more sun she gets the deeper violet-red she will turn. Under the right conditions, she will produce lots of greenish white flowers followed by small mistletoe like fruits lining both edges of the ribbon stems. Pretty crazy! See the close up in our pics!
Hang it in a spot where she will receive bright light to partial shade. Whilst Rhipsalis looks and feels like a cactus it is actually from the rain forest so if you can imagine this plant growing in a humid jungle away from direct sun you will give it the care it needs.
She will like a good drink (more than other cacti), but allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings.
These cacti won't want a normal cactus soil but will prefer to be in a soil largely composed of organic material, a soil that would normally be used for orchids and ariods. We recommend our in house Rainforest Potting Mix for Ariods and Hoyas!
Available in a black hanging nursery pot D9cmxH8cm
