  • Rhipsalis teres has long, thin multi-branched stems that can trail up to 1-2m in length. The Rhipsalis teres f. capilliformis is a fine stemmed form of the species. Small, white, star-shaped flowers bloom in spring to summer, followed by small white berries.

    Rhipsalis like a position in filtered light and do not like direct sunlight. Pot in a very well draining compost mix, such as an orchid mix in a pot with good drainage. Water regularly in the warmer growing months. Keep the soil just moist and do not over-water.
