INDOOR OR OUTDOOR PLANT - Giant Rhipsalis 305mm basket
Rhipsalis are tropical plants in the cactus family that have long, trailing stems making them perfect choices as indoor hanging plants. Their nickname is 'jungle cactus' because they often grow at altitude throughout Central America and up in trees but have adapted to be cactus-like.
These rhipsalis have pencil thin succulent stems that may reach 6 feet (2 m.) in length. The thick skin of the stems does not produce thorns, but it does have almost imperceptible bumps on the surface of the plant. These plants are found clinging to tree crotches, in branch nooks and nestled in rock crevasses. Rhipsalis are easy to grow and has very minimal needs.
The scale of these rhipsalis is quite enormous so make sure you have the room for them before buying. The pot they come in (on the images where it is visible!) is already 30cm wide. As a guide we do not sell decorative hangers big enough so can only deliver in the black pots they have been grown in.
Prefers well lit areas for happiest growth. Can cope with some full sun outdoors if acclimated.
Allow the top of the soil to dry out before re-watering. As a guide this might be a full wetting of all the soil every 1-2 weeks during the growing season and much less during winter.
