Rhipsalis campos-portoana is a beautiful clumping trailing plant with green foliage all year round. It has a beautiful trail.
Pot Size: 13cm
Rhipsalis grows best in morning sun and full shade in the afternoon. Rhipsalis is accustomed to receiving light that has been filtered through dense, overhanging tree branches. Picturing this environment can help you adjust your lighting accordingly.
Regular watering is essential. Over-watering, however, can cause weak stems and rotted roots. Rhipsalis seldom needs to be watered more than once a week. Check before watering by pressing your finger into the soil to a depth of half an inch. Postpone watering if the soil is moist. You can also use a moisture meter to help you determine whether it is time to water.
Rhipsalis like to drain after watering so never have a saucer under the pot when watering.
They thrive in a free draining cacti compost mix. I like to add in some coconut coir to help with drainage.
Rhipsalis is on the ASPCA's Non Toxic to Pets list. Best practice is always to keep houseplants out of reach of small children and pets.
