  • Rhipsalis cereuscula is an easy to grow ephiphytic cactus with small jointed stems that resemble coral, or grains of rice. A bushy cactus that forms bunches of stems at the end of the main stems as it becomes larger, making it ideal for a hanging basket.

    Masses of small, white flowers bloom in spring to summer in mature plants, that are followed by small, white berries.

    Rhipsalis cereuscula prefers a partially shaded position with filtered light. It does not tolerate full sun very well. Plant in a well draining organic mix, such as an orchid mix. Water regularly, when the soil becomes dry, but do not over-water.
