Rhipsalis baccifera f. quellebambensis

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

Description

One of over 1800 family members in the Rhipsalis genus native to Central and South American rainforests, this trailing plant is a popular choice as an ornamental for greenhouses or as a houseplant. Thanks to its trailing stems up to 2m in length, it looks wonderful suspended in a hanging basket or grown on a tree outdoors. It flowers for a very long time with cute light pink to white flowers which attract hummingbirds. In nature, this so-called jungle cactus is epiphytic (living on trees) and enjoys a warm, humid temperature with dappled light, so it will thrive if cultivated in similar growing conditions.

Keep moist all year and drier in winter, and enhance humidity by spraying. A fertile soil mix is also beneficial.

Most Rhipsalis plants are commonly called Mistletoe Cactus.

Due to quarantine laws Ezy Care Succulents can only post to QLD, NSW, SA and VIC. We are currently seeking approval to post to WA, TAS and NT, so please join our facebook group to receive updates of when we can ship to you.

PACKING

All plants are removed from their pots and all soil cleaned away as this is the safest and cleanest way of shipping. Succulents are extremely hardy, and this will not harm your plants in any way. Easy instructions on how to repot and care for your succulents are included with every order.

By preparing your plants with bare roots helps comply with quarantine regulations and also minimises shipping costs to our customers, making Ezy Care Succulents a very cost-effective way of purchasing your plants.

All orders are packaged with environmentally friendly compostable packing peanuts to ensure safe freight and reduce damage to the plant.

GENERAL INFOMRATION

Only the healthiest, top quality plants are selected from the Ezy Care Succulents nursery for your order. The size, colour, and shape of your shipment may vary according to the season, or when shipping to colder areas. All succulents are slightly dried prior to packaging and may look different to the photo. Preparation instructions are included in every order which are specific to the plants that you have ordered, and usually only take a few days to recover.

Even though many of our succulents are known for their agricultural and medicinal uses, all the plants at the Ezy Care Succulents nursery are propagated for ornamental purposes only. Please ensure that you have conducted your own thorough research if you intend on consuming these plants, as we recommend against human consumption.
