Sometimes classified as "jungle cacti," Rhipsalis originate in rainforests in Central and South America. Unlike arid cacti, Rhipsalis grow under heavy tree cover and are used to less direct light and more humid environments. They have segmented legs and can form long, leggy cascades. Rhipsalis mesembryanthemoides features segmented branches on a stronger central stem. Initially upright, the plant will eventually droop and trail, with the main stem growing up to 20" long. The dense spines are fairly benign. If given too little light, the plant won't bloom and its growth will be stunted. Aim for direct morning light and afternoon shade for ideal growth.
