Plant Bio


Rhipsalis
is a family of plants that are native to Central and Southern America. Coming in all shapes and sizes there are over 35 different species, floccosa being one of them.

Belonging to the group of forest rather than desert cactus, as such, it enjoys higher humidity and does not need as much direct sunlight. It is an epiphytic plant so in the wild grows on trees, with its succulent like stems reaching up to and over 6m long.

 
The species name Rhipsalis derives from the Ancient Greek term for wickerwork. The name Floccosus translates to having wool-like tufts. 

 
Part of the Cactaceae family, a huge family with some 1750 known species.
