Rhipsalis roseanaMistletoe cactus
Easy to care
The Rhipsalis roseana is a special type of cactus. The mistletoe cactus is actually a hanging plant without those annoying spines. The trailing stems of this fast growing plant provide a bit of green design to your interior and the plant requires little to no maintenance. This tropical succulent is a native to rainforests in South America and Africa and it is the only cactus growing in the wild outside of North and South America.
Only water the mistletoe cactus when the soil is completely dry. The plant doesn’t like sitting in moist soil for extended periods of time as this will deteriorate the vitality and decorative value of the plant. Even better for the mistletoe cactus is to mist it now and then.
Unlike many of its relatives, the mistletoe cactus prefers shade. The plant will survive in the sun, but the leaves will turn lighter and it will require watering more often. Are you taking good care of the plant? If you do, you will be rewarded with pretty little flowers after two or three years.
