Wow! Such a beautiful, elegant plant! We absolutely love the full shape and wonderful foliage on this houseplant! Rhipsalis Elliptica is beautiful easy care hanging plant from Brazil with unusual shaped leaves and structure. In its natural habitat, it is often found on steep slopes. A very easy care plant that enjoys the indirect sun and will flower regularly through summer. 

We love this plant for its easy care nature and unusual almost alien-like appearance providing interesting structure and shape. It works well as a potted plant or as a hanging plant. 

In the wild it's native to Brazil, where it lives in tropical subtropical or tropical forests, hanging or hanging on branches or growing in the hollow of old trees. The main threat to the species is deforestation. 

In its native habitat, it can be found growing along tree branches as an epiphyte, never harming its host but growing in harmony adding to the biomass and diversity of an ecosystem. Rhipsalis will grow in almost any light condition making it ideal as a houseplant and its travel around the world being cultivated into many forms as a houseplant. It will, however, grow best in bright indirect light. 

Rhipsalis make a great houseplant gift for friends or family - surprise them with rainforest style! If you are giving Rhipsalis as a gift, make sure you include your message at the basket stage.  We’ll deliver the houseplant along with a free, handwritten card - and we’ll leave out the paperwork with the price on!

When developing our original Happy Houseplants’ Vegan Cactus & Succulent Food, we decided not to tinker with it too much, so you'll find no chemical supplements in this 100% cruelty-free vegan product. Our organic original Vegan Cactus & Succulent food is made from Seaweed harvested sustainably.

Seaweed provides a delicate blend of growth hormones and micronutrients that is perfect for all indoor plants. Houseplants grow throughout spring, summer and autumn, so they will benefit from organic fertiliser during this time to encourage flowering and keep them healthy and well. Check out our full houseplant food range here
