Rhipsalis Pilocarpa


Rhipsalis pilocarpa is an epiphytic succulent with a fuzzy look and a unique, branching growth habit. The stems grow erect at first then split out into pom-pom clusters, eventually cascading to great effect in a hanging basket. The mother can be easily propagated by snipping the plant just about anywhere and planting directly in cactus/succulent mix.


Native to Brazil.


Rhipsalis thrive in indirect sun. Sun that is too intense can cause the surface to burn. If the plant does receive direct sunlight, make sure it’s one to two hours, max.


Water Rhipsalis paradoxa sparingly in winter months. During the grow season, water soil thoroughly, allowing it to dry completely in between waterings.

Tula's Tip

Rhipsalis can be easily propagated by stem cuttings in spring. Cut at least 3-4" down and allow the cut end to callus before planting into well-draining soil. Fertilize: Fertilize once every two weeks during the active growing season. This is limited to spring and summer in temperate climates.


This plant is potted in a 4” nursery pot.
