Mistletoe Cactus (Rhipsalis Lepismium Houlletiana) Collection #8
Rhipsalis Lepismium Houlletian is often reffered to as the Snow Drop Cactus. It is a very popular free-flowering, copiously-branched epiphyte, with long arching stems often reaching more than 1.5 metres in length. The older stems are stiff and cylindrical. These flattened stems are slender and leathery, pale fresh green in colour and sometimes tinged reddish. This form has reddish bases to the stamens, giving the flower a coloured throat and blossoms at almost any time of the year with red fruit to follow.
The bell-shaped flowers are 1.5-2 cm long and nodding, and the common name of snowdrop cactus is fully justified. This species is well-known and easily recognized, though rather variable in its dimensions, form and colour.
