Rhipsalis ‘Coral Cactus’ + Lillypilly Planter


BOTANICAL NAME_ Rhipsalis cereuscula (native to Uruguay and Brazil)

AKA_ Coral Cactus, Rice Cactus, Mistletoe Cactus, Jungle Cactus

FEATURES_ Rhipsalis cereuscula is an epiphytic cactus that forms skyward stems with coral-like, jointed clusters at top of stems that eventually drop and hang over the edge of a planter making it a perfect specimen for a hanging planter.

PLANT PERSONALITY_ This tropical, jungle cactus is a perfect match for sustainability warriors, the Coral Cactus for greening the planet and saving the Great Barrier Reef from coral bleaching.

PLANT PAIRING_ We have paired this Rhipsalis with a Lillypilly Pottery, wheel thrown, triple glazed, stoneware planter. The grey green glaze over matte black and white glazes tie in perfectly with the foliage of this beautiful plant.


The planter with drainage hole/s measures 21cm diam. x 10cm h, filled with quality cacti-succulent mix and top dressed with river pebbles for the perfect, living, sustainable gift. Wheel thrown and triple glazed, textured, stoneware planter by Lillypilly Pottery. Planted with a trailing Rhipsalis cereuscula. One only available. Please note colours may vary slightly due to monitor differences.

Rhipsalis species prefer a filtered light position inside and out, under the canopy of trees is a good spot outdoors, particularly in summer, full sun or indoors during mid autumn-winter.  Water well at the roots when the soil feels dry during the growing spring-summer season and allow to almost dry between watering. Likes more water than most succulents in a dry climate. Reduce watering during the winter, always allowing the soil to dry thoroughly between waterings. Remove old leaves from the base to keep clean and free of pests and rot. Liquid feed at 1/4 to 1/2 strength of other plants during the growing season.

Delivering to inner Melbourne and surrounding metro suburbs for a fee or free local pick up in Williamstown. We prefer to deliver plant gifts to a workplace, home or apartments with a concierge.
