Rhipsalis neves-armondii

We've had this old Rhipsalis neves-armondii for longer than either of us can remember. It came through the fire in 1003 and continues to produce these neat little flowers at times when not much else is happening. This rhipsalis is from Brazil (Paraná, Rio de Janeiro, Santa Catarina, São Paulo), and like most epiphytes (and geophytes), it likes a moist substrate that also provides good drainage. Give less water in the Winter and keep free of frost.
