Native to South America, this plant is lives in the understory of the forest where light is filtered through the high limbs. Growing Rhipsalis is easy if you mimic native conditions. Try this fine foliaged succulent in a great hanging basket placed in indirect light. Plants appreciate regular water but require well-drained planting mix. Tiny white flowers open in spring.
