When dusting the leaves, also take the opportunity to inspect the undersides and keep an eye out for pests.Remember each plant is a unique living thing and may have varying needs, especially in their individual locations.

Soil type
Use a poor Cacti soil with slightly nutrients to keep the plants well coloured. A bit of perlite will help with a good drainage and avoid overwatering
Watering instructions
Always be sure to assess your plant?s watering needs upon receiving it. Before giving your plant a drink, it is best to check the moisture level in the soil first to ensure it isn?t moist right beneath the surface. Also, consider aerating the soil of your plant before the initial watering. We compact the soil to avoid shifting during transit, so aerating can help the soil breathe and allow moisture to be released.Despite being native to tropical rainforests, Rhipsalis are a type of cactus and as such are still quite sensitive to overwatering. We recommend watering once a week, or whenever the soil becomes dry. They prefer lightly moist, but not wet soil, but ensure they have ample time to dry out to avoid water buildup in the soil that can rot the roots.

Room temperature
Plants is easy to keep and can stand heats, droughts and cold but best is a temperature between 12-25 degrees Celsius.
Room position
Rhipsalis prefers bright, indirect light and can tolerate direct morning and evening light. The best place to put it is at least a few feet removed from a window, but Rhipsalis is an extremely hardy plant. It can subsist on minimal light for extended periods, especially with some low grade fertilizer. We?ve even seen it subsist on fluorescent light alone! However, if you go the low-light route we recommend recharging your plant in a higher light area every once in a while.
Annual
No
Feeding instructions
Fertilize once a month with a half diluted cactus fertilizer, following the package instructions for dilution and administration. Use an organic potting mix with a slow release fertilizer in the soil, so your plant will not need fertilizer within the first 6 months of receiving it.
