 A beautiful epiphytic succulent, with long, thin, thread-like stems that cascade beautifully.  In late winter-spring, beautiful white flowers are produced along the stems.
This plant looks great in a tall planter, where it can cascade over the edge.  It is probably most striking, when grown in a hanging pot, where its elegant form can be displayed to its full potential.

Grows well as a houseplant.


Bright shade, well-drained soil, or orchid mix.

Occasional water.  Will need more regular water in summer
Hardy to approx. 30 degrees, with some protection.  

USDA zones 10a -13b

Pot size:  3 inch


Rhipsalis burchelli
