Long, succulent stems with serrated edges grow to 50cm. Semi erect to trailing and often with a pink blush in bright light. Generally with four angles, hence the ‘crucifrom’ or cross reference in the name, but sometimes with three or five. Pink flowers with white stamens open winter to spring.
Commonly seen in glossy magazines and Instagram posts, these care free, trailing, epiphytic cacti make highly decorative container plants. They grow easily on patios, beneath trees or bright light spots indoors. They are really easy to care for and will last forever.
With multiple, advanced plants and 15-20cm growth these potted, named varieties offer terrific value.
Rhipsalis are native to tropical jungles of South America and Madagascar and Africa, they are epiphytic and live in understorey trees.
