Rhipsalis cereuscula is an epiphytic cactus with a unique growth habit. It can grow up to 2' long and makes for a beautiful hanging basket. The stems grow erect at first then split out into pom-pom like clusters. Flowers are small white, sometimes pinkish, bell shaped blossoms.
Native to Uruguay and Brazil.
Rhipsalis thrive in indirect sun. Sun that is too intense can cause surface to burn.
Water Rhipsalis sparingly in winter months. During the grow season, water soil thoroughly, allowing it to dry completely in between waterings.
Rhipsalis can be easily propagated by stem cuttings in early spring. Cut at least 3-4" down and allow cut end to callous before planting into soil. Fertilize: Fertilize once every two weeks during the active growing season. This is limited to spring and summer in temperate climates.
Approx. 5-7" tall x 4-5" at the widest point. Every plant will vary in size, color and shape.
