ADD A BEAUTIFUL FITTED POT (OPTIONAL)
Happy house plants new favourite, we've not seen red coral this big before and the colours are incredible, this hanging pant is so striking and impressive. Whilst Rhipsalis looks and feels like a cactus it is actually from the rain forset so if you can imagine this plant growing in a humid jungle away from direct sun you will give it the care it needs.
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, Rhipsalis red coral 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 it travelled around the world being cultivated into many forms as a houseplant. It will, however, grow best in bright indirect light.
Rhipsalis red coral makes 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!
