Rhipsalis burchelli, the cactacea that looks like a herbaceous!

Rhipsalis are the only non-Uruguayan cacti of America. It is an epiphytic genus, ie growing close to other plants, usually on branches, or between rocks or in the ground. Rhipsalis, however, do not get nourishment by feeding from the plant that hosts them, but directly from precipitation.
When viewed closely, the branches are very similar to those of a miniature cactus, even if from a distance the appearance is deceptive and may almost seem like herbaceous plants. With growth, the habit becomes very bushy.
Rhipsalis burchellii likes a cultivation temperature between 10 ° C and 30 ° C. The more the environment is dry the more the Rhipsalis burchellii grow well. In spring-summer they are watered only once a week, in winter every 15 days or even once a month.
The ideal substrate for Rhipsalis is well draining, with organic material like bark, or sawdust. Fertilization can be done in the vegetative period with fertilizer suitable for cacti.
