If you're not very greenfingered, and want something that's easy to care for and rewards a little effort with a lot of enjoyment - then this is the plant for you. It may not look like much at first, but once it gets growing, it morphs from a knobbly cluster of green nodules into long arching branching stems; and when it bursts into a cascade of starry blooms - so pretty!

Rhipsalis cereuscula - coral cactus, mistletoe cactus, rice cactus

APPEARANCE: A mound of small rice-grain-like green succulent stems which grow into long branching arching stems. Mature happy plants flower with white starry fringed bell flowers at the tips of the stems, which become white berries. In the wild it is epiphytic (grows on trees) hence the common name of mistletoe cactus.
USE IN: Somewhere shaded from direct sun, and sheltered - indoors, on a balcony, in a subtropical garden.
LOCATION: Plant in free-draining gritty soil out of direct sunlight but with good filtered light. The leaf tips will turn reddish if it gets too cold.
CARE: Very little needed. Keep it frost free, water little and often, and reduce watering in winter dormant period.
HEIGHT & WIDTH:  60cm x 90 cm W
YOUR PLANTS: These are tubestock plants with a healthy young root system and will establish quickly in your garden. The pot size is 80 mm x 42 mm wide. Your plants may be supplied as 'plugs', slightly smaller than our usual tubestock but with a healthy root system ready for planting or potting on.
