    • Rhipsalis baccifera, also known as the coral cactus or mistletoe cactus, is a popular houseplant that is native to rainforests in Central and South America. It's known for its long, trailing stems and easy-care requirements. Here are care instructions for Rhipsalis cereuscula in the UK:
    • Light: Rhipsalis baccifera prefers bright, indirect sunlight. Place it near a north or east-facing window where it can receive filtered sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the delicate foliage.

    • Temperature: Maintain a consistent temperature range between 15°C to 24°C. Protect the plant from drafts and sudden temperature fluctuations, especially during the winter months.

    • Watering: Water your Rhipsalis baccifera when the top inch of the soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly but allow excess water to drain from the pot. Avoid letting the plant sit in standing water, as it can lead to root rot. During the winter months, reduce watering frequency to allow the plant to go slightly drier between waterings.

    • Humidity: Rhipsalis baccifera benefits from higher humidity levels, which can be challenging to maintain indoors, especially during the winter when indoor heating can dry out the air. You can increase humidity by misting the plant regularly or placing a tray of water near the plant.

    • Soil: Use a well-draining potting mix that is specifically formulated for cacti and succulents. Alternatively, you can create your own mix by combining potting soil with perlite or sand to improve drainage.

    • Fertilizing: Feed your Rhipsalis baccifera with a diluted, balanced liquid fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer) every 4-6 weeks. Reduce or cease fertilization during the dormant winter months.
