Care

General Maintenance: Handle the plant carefully as its long stems are faragile and may break. Repot every couple of years, keeping in a small pot. Take care to shade mistletoe cactus from hot, direct sunlight

Temperature: This cactus is native to rainforests where it is warm with very high humidity: temperatures no lower than 16 degrees Celsius, with 21-24 degrees Celsius being the norm and 50% relative humidity are idea indoors

Light: Rhipsalis does not thrive in direct sunlight, it does best with morning sun and full shade in the afternoon

Watering: Unlike most cacti, rhipsalis comes from tropical rainforests rather than the desert. It typically grows on trees rather than in soil. Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged during its growign season (April - August). Never allow standing water on the soil's surface, but don't let the soil to dry out completely

Soil: Use a well-draining, slightly acidic soil mis - a cactus soil mix combined with bark chips is idea. Do not pack the soil down. These plants will enjoy aeration in the soil much like other epiphytes

Fertilizer:? Do not feed newly repotted or just-purchased rhipsalis for 12 months. THey have very minimal needs and as such, rarely require fertilizing. If feeding is required, use a diluted (half-strength) cactus fertilizer monthly during the spring and summer
