Rhipsalidopsis Spirit will give you prolific, long lasting blooms providing amazing colour and the flowers are stunning. The star-shaped flowers are nyctinastic - they open at sunrise and close at sunset. this plant can grow to about 60cm high and wide.
Place it in a well-lit position near a sunny windows. Avoid direct sunlight since the fleshy leaves of the plant will easily burn.
Water thoroughly, allow the plant to drain, and then let the soil dry out between watering's. Rhipsalidopsis do not like wet feet, so ensure that the pot has good drainage. Clay pots are ideal for growing Rhipsalidopsis cactus since they allow for good soil aeration and drainage.
Trimming the plant after flowering will maintain the desired size of the plant. They also like a well draining, loamy soil mixture and like to be slightly pot-bound. Since they are an epiphyte, they don’t grow in soil in their natural habitat. You can also use cactus and succulent soil, or orchid soil with good results.
If you have heating units or air-conditioners, it is best to avoid placing plants underneath or next to them. This is because of the air blowing out from these units can be very hot or cold which can leave a healthy plant burnt, damaged and stressed. We recommend the Australian made Munash Organics soil food & foliage spray or The Plant Runner Plant Food or neem oil to keep you plants happy and healthy!

*Disclaimer: We pack our gorgeous plants for shipment extremely carefully, however we do ask that you keep in mind that once they leave our store, we cannot guarantee how carefully they are handled in transit. We cannot guarantee they have been sung to or talked to by the postmen!
So, if a leaf is a little bent, bruised or maybe a small stem broken off, we cannot control this. If by some chance your plant did not arrive alive, never fear, we have got you covered just email our customer service team firstname.lastname@example.org and we will either replace the plants pronto or refund you.
