SpecificationsRhipsalis clavata cascades from hanging pots and baskets with narrow cylindrical pale green pendent stems, up to 5mm in diameter and can reach 2.1m in length! The blooms are sporadic all season and consist of very small, white 'bell' flowers, followed by small yellow/red fruits. Rhipsalis do not appreciate direct sunlight as they can burn, turn yellow or become spotted. However without sunlight they will not flower and growth may become stunted. Rhipsalis does best with morning sun and full shade in the afternoon. Rhipsalis also do well indoors but have a little care with placement, not too close to windows receiving afternoon sun. Rhipsalis are not drought resistant so regular watering; but not over-watering, as this may cause the roots to rot. Ideal situation is a sheltered position in a shaded area, under trees and indoors in hanging decorative containers.
