An epiphytic tropical cactus! Indeed, far from semi-desert environments, Rhipsalis have adapted to humid environments in order to compete with herbaceous plants. They are found clinging to the bark of trees and sometimes on a rocky cliff. We love it for its long, thick, branched, drooping stems. In addition, from June to September, pretty little white or pink flowers appear all along the stems.

Non-toxic to animals.
