Commonly known as mistletoe cactus or spaghetti cactus, is a species of epiphytic cactus native to Central and South America, the Caribbean, and certain parts of Florida. Unlike many cacti, Rhipsalis species are adapted to shaded, tropical environments and are often found growing on trees in their native habitats.
Mistletoe cactus has long, slender stems that cascade or hang down, giving it a trailing or pendulous appearance. The stems are composed of numerous cylindrical segments, and small, inconspicuous flowers may appear along the edges. In favorable conditions, it may produce small, berry-like fruits.
As a houseplant, Rhipsalis baccifera is appreciated for its unique form and adaptability to lower light conditions. It generally prefers well-draining soil and regular, but not excessive, watering.
