Rhipsalis is a cactus wannabee. It is a perfect lovechild of both worlds: it doesn't have needles, so it can be around children and pets, however, it requires more watering than your average cactus. It has a nickname of mistletoe cactus (yes, it is the one you kiss under at Christmas) as they gradually trail over the edge of the pot and hang down as they grow. Regardless of the unwelcoming middle name "Horrida" it is a cutie pie you want to adopt and take care of.

- Keep the soil moist, but not waterlog during its growing season, which occurs from the early spring to late summer. Let the topsoil dry out between waterings. Using a Sustee Moisture Meter stick helps to figure out how much moisture is in the soil so you don’t under or overwater.
