Rhipsalis horrida


This epiphytic cactus produces a mess of thick multi-branched stems that are reddish green at the tips and sage green along the stem with bristly reddish-brown to white hairs.

This crazy little dude is native to Madagascar. As it matures it will start to branch from the tips of the stems as well as the base.


Water when the top 2-3cm of soil in the pot dries out during the Spring and Summer months. Water much less during Autumn and Winter. Never allow these guys to stand in water as they will rot.


Likes bright indirect light and humidity but will also handle a bit of shade. Great for a brightly lit kitchen.

Managing growth

These little guys will have stems that are 15-20cm long when they arrive at your door. Their beautiful dreadlock-like foliage can get over half a metre long making it a real show stopper when displayed on a high shelf!

Greeting your Rhipsalis horrida

These plants are shipped in a 1.5L nursery pot that is wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in during transport. They will fit any pot from our Classic Pot Range.
