Mistletoe cactus comes complete in a Kokodama®, hanging pot. New shoots grow upright, but after a while they will hang over the edge. Ensure that the pot is not tipped over by all the hanging shoots.
Rhipsalis sp., known as Mistletoe cactus can be placed in the sun, shade or part shade. The fleshy leaves and stems are very strong. Very undemanding plant. Will easily tolerate the dry air of our homes, even above the radiator. Perfect for hanging over the side of a tall cabinet once they have grown enough.


Although classified as cacti, this species under ideal conditions still require a fair amount of water – once twice (small amounts) a week.  Do not allow any water to remain in the saucer - and the potting compost should feel a little on the dry side. If you do happen to neglect it for a few weeks, it will still survive. Feed several times over spring and summer with plant food for flowering plants.

Rhipsalis plants in bloom

The Rhipsalis can develop flowers on these plants the whole year through. Insects will pollinate them but you can give them a helping hand with a little paintbrush. If it works well, you will get small decorative berries which add an additional charm to these delightful plants. The colour of the berries changes according to the variety although they are mostly white or pink.

If the hanging shoots get too long, just cut them back to the required length.


This type of plant is a very easily kept house plant, tolerating our dry indoor air. The thick, fleshy stems store lots of moisture and act as a water reservoir during periods of drought.

Mistletoe cacti make great plants for difficult spots, such as above a radiator and look great hanging over the top of a cabinet.
