"Mistletoe Cactus"

Rhipsalis burchellii "Mistletoe Cactus"

This RARE & highly unusual plant is actually a thornless, tree-dwelling cactus! Best planted in a hanging basket or large container, it forms an elegant cascade of delicate branches than can reach down to 5’! Lovely creamy white flowers emerge along the stems, eventually making way for darling pink fruits. A wonderful choice for a shady patch of the garden or for keeping as a houseplant. Provide well-draining cactus soil, regular light water & keep away from strong winds for ultimate plant happiness. Stems are generally green, but turn coral pink when exposed to too much sunlight. As you might imagine we keep ours in as sunny a spot as we dare!
