DESCRIPTION

Rhipsalis pilocarpa is an epiphytic cactus with cylindrical stems that initially grow upright and then pendant (trailing). The stems are green, but tinge reddish when the plant is in full sun or stressed. Small white, fragrant flowers appear on the ends of the stems in spring to summer.

Although Rhipsalis are classified as cacti, they require different care to their desert cousins. Rhipsalis pilocarpa do not like full sun, but appreciate filtered light or morning sun with full shade in the afternoon. They are not drought tolerant and should be watered regularly, but not overwatered. Allow the soil to dry slightly between waterings.

Plant in an organic mix that allows for good drainage, such as an orchid mix, or peat with bark and perlite.

Synonyms

Hairy stemmed cactus, Hairy-fruited wickerware cactus
