  • Rhipsalis micrantha (Kunth) DC, is an epiphytic, trailing plant with bright green stems that can trail to up to 1.5m in length. Small white flowers bloom in spring.

    As with most Rhipsalis, these plants need a shaded position with some morning or evening sun or filtered light. Keep them away from full sun. Pot them in an organic mix, such as an orchid mix or peat with some perlite or bark pieces for drainage.
