    Pseudorhipsalis ramulosa is a reasonably easy plant to grow, and tolerates neglect fairly well. It's long flat stems are bright green when grown in the shade, or filtered light, with optimal growing conditions, but turn red when placed in bright light or under environmental stress. The more light or sun that it gets, the deeper red it becomes.

    It produces masses of small, greenish-white flowers followed by mistletoe-like berries along the edges of the stems.

    Plant Pseudorhipsalis ramulosa in a loose organic mix, such as an orchid mix, and place in a position with filtered light. Water regularly, when soil starts to dry out, but do not over-water.
