Rhipsalis teres ‘Mistletoe Cactus’

Posted by on June 25th 2017 in

Rhipsalis teres (Mistletoe Cactus)

An interesting cactus houseplant, mistletoe cactus is a modern indoor plant that has a unique form thanks to its trailing shape. Unlike most cacti, mistletoe cactus comes from tropical rainforests rather than the desert. It typically grows on trees rather than in soil. Because of that, it’s best to treat your mistletoe cactus a bit like an orchid and allow the potting mix to dry a bit before watering again. Take care not to overwater mistletoe cactus.
Because mistletoe cactus has trailing stems, you usually see this houseplant sold in hanging baskets. They’re a great way to enliven a window.

Grow mistletoe cactus in low to medium light. It can take a little direct sun indoors, especially in Northern climates, but doesn’t need bright sun to thrive. This indoor plant thrives under artificial lighting, too.
