Rhipsalis mesembryanthemoides is a unique epiphytic cactus that is native to Central and South America, including Brazil and Argentina. It can also be found in some regions of the Caribbean. Its leaves are thin, flat, and elongated, reaching up to 2-3 cm in length. They are a light green color and are arranged in a flattened, slightly arching manner. Its small white flowers have five petals and bloom in the spring. They appear in clusters and are followed by small, spherical fruits that turn red when ripe. Rhipsalis mesembryanthemoides has a trailing growth habit. It is often grown in hanging baskets, and its cascading stems can make a stunning feature in any indoor space.
