Rhipsalis Micanthra - Hanging Basket
Available for LOCAL DELIVERY and CLICK & COLLECT Only
The Rhipsalis is characterised by the fresh and bright green colour of its strappy stems that combine together in a bunch and hang from the pot. The plant has a tendency to keep growing so it can also look very nice in a tall vase or hanging planter. Place the plant away from direct sunlight and regularly give it a small amount of water. This plant is originally from Brazil.
Most are epiphytic (live in trees) and have hanging stems making them excellent hanging basket specimens. They are classified as jungle cacti, loving some humidity and shade, so keep moist throughout the year and they also benefit from misting. Commonly grown indoors, they must be carefully placed away at least 50cm away from sunny windows and they will do best when planted in clay pots which allows soil to “breathe” better.
