Cactus 'Rhipsalis' Care Guide
Provide bright indirect light and avoid direct afternoon sunlight. Morning sun is ideal.
Water sparingly during winter, with a drink every 7-10 days in spring and summer. Ensure proper drainage to prevent overwatering.
Keep it away from temperatures below 10°C, especially in frost-prone regions. Bring it indoors during colder months if needed.
Use a balanced diluted fertiliser every two weeks during the growing season.
Consider repotting annually using a typical organic cactus potting mix to maintain soil freshness and drainage.
This succulent communicates its watering needs by showing slight browning and crispiness, quickly bouncing back to life once hydrated.
