Rhipsalis paradoxa, also known as the chain cactus, is a unique and interesting plant that originates from the rainforests of South America. It's an epiphytic cactus that can be found growing on trees, rocks, and other surfaces in its natural habitat.
The plant has long, narrow, and flat leaves that are arranged in a chain-like pattern, giving it a distinctive appearance. The leaves are a bright green color and can grow up to 4 inches in length. The plant may also produce small white or yellowish flowers, although they are relatively rare.
The plant has a trailing habit and looks great when planted in a hanging basket or allowed to spill over the edges of a pot. It's a low-maintenance plant that can add a touch of greenery to any indoor space.
