Rhipsalis Baccifera Oasis ‘Mistletoe Cactus’ 25cm
Rhipsalis Baccifera Oasis ‘Mistletoe Cactus’ in hanging pot
Neediness: This is a low maintenance houseplant. It will benefit from occasionally dusting the leaves to unblock its pores and rotating to ensure even growth.
Watering: As it is a cactus it is sensitive to overwatering (the roots can rot if kept wet) so just water when the top layer of soil feels dry to the touch. Aim for moist but not soggy soil. This plant will let you know when it is thirsty because the leaves will lose their rigidity.
Humidity: Moderate to high humidity
Ideal location: bedrooms, living rooms, studies, offices, bathrooms and kitchens
Temperature: keep at a normal room temperature.
Pets: this plant is toxic to cats and dogs.
Also known as: Mistletoe Cactus or Rhipsalis Baccifera
Rate of growth: slow growing but in their natural environment tendrils can reach 20ft! They are unlikely to grow longer than can be handled at home. If any of the stems are damaged, trim them with a clean, sharp knife. You can use these cuttings to grow a new Rhipsalis.
