Rhipsalis are the most widespread species of epiphytic cactus. In the wild Rhipsalis naturally grow attached to trees where they can root into moss for stability.
When growing Rhipsalis as a pot plant, they need humidity rather than lots of watering. Rhipsalis grow best when planted in free draining compost to avoid them sitting in water. To encourage healthy growth, they can be misted and fed as a supplement to watering the pot. They prefer diffused natural light. A very tolerant plant, Rhipsalis will survive small periods of neglect, making them a great plant for the not so green fingered!
Supplied in a 5.5cm pot.
