Rhipsalis teres var heteroclada

Rhipsalis teres var heteroclada is a unique and intriguing plant that is sure to add character to any indoor space. It is native to Central and South America, where it grows as an epiphyte in the understory of tropical rainforests.

The plant has thin, cylindrical stems that hang gracefully from its pot, growing up to 3 feet long. Its leaves are small and scale-like, growing in clusters along the stems. The plant rarely produces flowers, but when it does, they are small and white, appearing at the tips of the stems.

Rhipsalis teres var heteroclada thrives in bright, indirect light and requires moderate watering. It is best to allow the soil to dry out slightly between waterings, as overwatering can lead to root rot. This plant prefers a well-draining, cactus or orchid mix potting soil.

The plant has a trailing habit and can be grown in a hanging basket or trained to climb up a trellis or other support. Its unique appearance makes it a popular choice for modern and minimalist decor.
