Coral Cactus + Cement Planter


BOTANICAL NAME_ Rhipsalis cereuscula (native to Brazil)

AKA_ Coral Cactus, Rice Cactus, Mistletoe Cactus

FEATURES_ It gets its name from the rice or coral shaped joints that make up the stem. It starts off as an upright bushy plant that, as it grows, drops and hangs over the edge in clusters of rice shaped joints.  An impressive hanging plant for a bright position indoors or filtered light position outdoors.

PLANT PERSONALITY_ This plant is a bit of weirdo. It starts upright with erect shoots which become pendant like but then sends out further upright clusters, like a bunch of flowers. Called a coral cactus, but not coral, nor strictly a cactus. It’s a bit of a messed up plant. Perfect for the boho jungalow, carefree and a little bit wild.

Euphorbia ‘Zipper Plant’ + Cement Planter


BOTANICAL NAME_ Euphorbia anoplia (native to South Africa)

AKA_ Tanzanian Zipper, named for the striping pattern along the margins of its angled stems.

February ~ late summer

Melbourne’s relatively mild summer is drawing to a close with a lot of rain and humidity in the air.  We have been spared a hot summer which has been somewhat of a relief as fires burned inland.  We now move into Autumn with lots to think about going forward and in preparation for future summers.
