Rhipsalis oblonga

Originally labeled Rhipsalis crispimarginata, this plant - native to Brazil (southern Bahia, Espirito Santo, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo) - has decided to put out it's blooms. We like this plant year 'round because its foliage is so nice, but the tiny little Rhipsalis flowers are an added bonus.
Care is easy. Though they generally don't like to go totally dry, our Epiphyllum and Rhipsalis plants tend to be forgotten among all the desert plants. But even with this benign neglect, they do quite well.
