Pseudorhipsalis ramulosa is a shrubby, epiphytic cactus, freely branching basally with pendant, flat, reddish tapeworm stems up to 70 cm long, that turn deep violet red in high light. It produces lots of greenish-white or pinkish flowers, up to 1.2 cm and up to 1.5 cm in diameter, followed by small, ornamental, shell berries lining both edges of the ribbon stems.
They originate from South and Central America and commonly grown indoors. They should be kept at least 50 cm away from windows that receive midday or afternoon sun. The glass in the windows can multiply the heat from the sun’s rays, causing sunburned leaves. Exposure to afternoon sun can burn the leaves, turn them yellow, or lead to spotting. However, without sufficient sunlight, they will not bloom, and its growth can be stunted.
Keep in mind that in its native environment, Rhipsalis is accustomed to receiving light that has been filtered through dense, overhanging tree branches.
Rhipsalis Ramulosa or Red Mistletoe Cactus or Red Coral, is not a drought-resistant plant, so regular watering is essential. Over-watering, however, can cause weak stems and rotted roots. Water less in winter.
It is ideally suited to housing in a hanging pot as the cascading leaves look eye-catching.
