Lighting for your Rhipsalis
Reece likes bright indirect sunlight. The perfect combination for Reece is morning sun and afternoon shade. In the wild Reece receives filtered light from overhanging tree branches so do your best to recreate this.
Watering your Rhipsalis
Humidity for your Rhipsalis
Reece will tolerate normal room humidity but will thrive if the humidity is slightly higher.
Fertiliser for your Rhipsalis
From March to August give Reece some houseplant fertiliser every month when watering. Unless you have recently repotted Reece, the new soil should have enough nutrients in it for the next year so lay off the fertiliser.
Repotting your Rhipsalis
When the roots start to grow out of the bottom opening of the pot, it is time to put Reece into a larger pot. For soil, we recommend a well draining soil.
Rhipsalis common care problems
Leaves can turn yellow or become spotted if Reece is getting too much light.
Too much watering can lead to root rot, make sure to test the soil moisture with your finger before watering.
