Rhipsalis paradoxa ssp. septentrionalis
This fascinating specimen is an unusal jungle cactus, native to Brasil. This Rhipsalis is a narrower form of the Rhipsalis paradoxa. We believe it to be the subspecies septentrionalis. The modified stems resemble Rhip. paradoxa but are much thinner & more delicate looking.
Septentrionalis is an epiphytic jungle cactus (growing on a tree), making them very easy to care for. Hang or place your Rhipsalis in bright, indirect light or partial shade. Keep away from direct sun. If the plant receives too much intense light it can darken in appreance and the stems can scorch. Over the growing season you'll be surprise how thirsty jungle cacti can be. Allow an inch to half the medium to dry out on a regular basis. Over winter withhold from watering until the compost is nearly dry. They don't like to be cold and wet during their dormancy.
