Rhipsalis Goebeliana is a cultivated variety of unknown origin. This species has flat, segmented leaves which are elliptical in shape, dark, olive green in colour, with wavy edges. It will develop small, white flowers around 1cm in size, at the edge of the leaf blades. These small flowers are highly fragrant, and will emerge in the colder months (July / August).
The Rhipsalis genus comprises over 60 species native to South America. Most are epiphytic (live in trees). Many have hanging stems making them excellent hanging basket specimens. Most prefer shade and some humidity.
We recommend purchasing 2 or 3 cuttings when planting up a pot as it will ensure the development of a robust and aesthetic plant.
Rhipsalis do best in partial shade in a fertile soil mix. Keep reasonable moist throughout the year, a little less so in winter. They enjoy humidity and so benefit from spraying.
