Mistletoe Cactus Overview

Rhipsalis baccifera is a flowering perennial in the cactus family, Cactaceae. This plant has slender, branched and trailing stems that are thought to resemble the unrelated species, Viscum album, which is also known by the common name Mistletoe. This species is commonly known by the name Mistletoe Cactus and it is an epiphyte; living on the surface of other plants and gain nutrients from the air, from rainfall and from accumulated debris around them. Typically grown for the foliage, this plant forms succulent pencil-shaped stems which make a tangled mound and trail attractively over pot edges. Flowers are delicate and cream-white to pink-tinged in colour, leading onto vibrant pink-red berry fruits. They are usually cultivated as houseplants or glasshouse specimens as they are frost tender and require high humidity and bright but indirect light.
