Rhipsalis cereuscula

Rice cactus, Coral Cactus, Mistletoe Cactus

Rhipsalis cereuscula


This is an epiphytic (tree-dwelling) cactus with light green cylindrical jointed stems that look like chubby grains of rice. The stems are erect at first, but as they grow longer they become pendant up to 2 feet long. In the spring, tiny greenish-white, often tinged with pink, flowers appear to be followed later by small white berries. It makes a perfect houseplant and hanging basket plant with its numerous small flowers. It thrives best in bright shade with no direct sunlight. It's not a drought-resistant plant, so regular watering is necessary, but let the soil dry out a bit between waterings. Plant it in a slightly acidic, well-drained potting mix. It will not survive a hard frost, so it should be brought indoors or given protection in winter. The tips of the stems often turn reddish with cold weather. It's a native of Uruguay and Brazil. USDA zones 9b to 11b Cactaceae
