This Rhipsalis Compacta is an epiphytic cactus. Yay we like epiphytic plants! They grow in the crooks of trees, making them a super easy care plant.
These guys come from Brazil, in particular; São Paulo, Paraná, Espírito Santo and Santa Catarina. Which means they like life the Brazilian way - hot and humid!
They're actually pretty easy going - just keep the soil moist, but not waterlogged and pop them in a shaded spot.
They're a quick growing plant and will reach lengths of up to 6ft.
It's a spineless cactus and therefore makes it a a great child friendly house plant and you don't have to worry about small hand grabbing it.
If you do happen to break off a section of your plant don't throw it away. Pop it on the side and wait for the end to callus. This basically means let the end dry over.
Then pop it straight in some soil and in 6-ish weeks it will have rooted and will start to grow.
And great news to pet owners, these guys are non-toxic to your four legged friends.
Delivered in a 14cm plastic pot.
