Images are used for general reference only. The size, flower color and shape of each plant will vary. As well as the bloom state. 

Light: Rhipsalis require very bright but mostly indirect light. Placement near an East or West facing window is ideal.

Water: Water the soil thoroughly once it becomes about halfway dry. Do not allow roots to sit in standing water. 

Environment: Although they are succulent-like, Rhipsalis plants prefer considerably more humidity than the typical desert succulent. Added supplemental humidity through the winter months is beneficial. Use a succulent or other similar well draining soil mix. Temperatures should be kept above 50 degrees fahrenheit. 

Toxicity: Reported to be toxic to cats and dogs.

Of Note*:

  • As epiphytic plants, the roots are fairly shallow and serve mostly to simply anchor the plant.
  • Keep an eye out for common pests like mealy, scale, and spider mites. If the infestation is small, it can be taken care of simply with a wet cloth.

    *When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting.
