Short Straps

Rhipsalis micrantha ssp. rauhriorum

$ 6.50

Description

The so-called “Short Straps” Rhipsalis is one of many in the huge South American genus, and one of four subspecies of micrantha. This particular micrantha variety is distinct from its siblings thanks to wider leaves and deeper grooved margins. Otherwise, it is very similar, being a bushy, richly branching succulent, featuring flat to triangular olive green, scalloped stem segments, small yellow or white flowers, and little mistletoe-like berries, giving rise to another common name “Mistletoe Cactus”.

Its elegant form and flexible, wicker-like branches make it a popular choice for hanging baskets where stems cascade down over edges. An epiphytic, jungle cactus, this Rhipsalis likes an environment emulating its native rainforests. Filtered, dappled sunlight, warmth and some humidity will provide optimum growth. A daily misting of water is appreciated. Keep in rich, organic, well-draining soil.

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.
