This is one of those plants I stumbled across a photo of and I had to have it. Once it gets going it looks like an octopus trying to escape the flower pot.
A green to red rhipsalis with small tufts of white with red flowers along plant. Flowers will become small red fruits. A happy plant can have trailing stems up to 4′ long. This is a hanging rhipsalis, it’ll need to be up high enough to let the branches trail. Fast growing once it gets started.
Water lightly but do not let get dry, water more in warm weather less in cold weather. Pot must have good drainage
Light shade, will burn in direct afternoon sun, loves bright morning sun best
Protect from cold, 55’F, and from heat greater than 80’F
Propagate from cuttings, let end callous over before planting in damp soil
Endangered in natural habitat, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, so be sure to pass cuttings along to all the gardeners you know
