Rhipsalis cereuscula 'Coral Cactus' + Cement Planter 14cm

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.

PAIR WITH_  Pairs perfectly with our macrame plant hangers made from sustainable cord by local makers in the Yarra Valley. OSFA




Cement planters are 14cm w x 14cm h, potted using a quality potting-perlite mix.

Rhipsalis plants prefer morning sun and full afternoon shade outdoors. Grown typically under the canopy of trees with dappled sunlight, replicating this in an outdoor area will ensure a happy plant. They are also a happy indoor plant where they get plenty of light, however, position away from any direct afternoon sun in summer. They like to be brought indoors over winter in Melbourne. Water well at the roots when the soil feels dry during the growing spring-summer season and allow to just dry between watering. Reduce watering during the winter. Liquid feed at 1/4 to 1/2 strength of other plants during the growing season.
