Rhipsalis - Ramulosa Red Coral

Rhipsalis - Ramulosa Red Coral


Pseudorhipsalis ramulosa, also known as Rhipsalis ramulosa or Kimnachia ramulosa, is a shrubby epiphytic cactus, freely branching basally, with pendant, reddish stems that turn deep violet red in high light. The stems are flat and up to 2.3 feet (70 cm) long. Flowers are greenish-white or pinkish, up to 0.5 inches (1.2 cm) long and up to 0.6 inches (1.5 cm) in diameter. They are followed by small ornamental shell berries lining both edges of the ribbon stems.


Rhipsalis do not thrive in direct sunlight. Exposure to the afternoon sun can burn the leaves, turn them yellow, or lead to spotting. However, without sufficient sunlight, They will not bloom, and their growth can be stunted. Rhipsalis does best with the morning sun and full shade in the afternoon.


As Rhipsalis is commonly grown indoors, care must be given to the placement of the plants. They should be kept at least 20 inches (50 cm) from windows that receive midday or afternoon sun. 


Rhipsalis is not a drought-resistant plant, so regular watering is essential. Over-watering, however, can cause weak stems and rotted roots
