Rhipsalis pachyptera, native to Brazil, is an epiphytic cactus with flattened jointed stems, similar to Zygocactus. In habitat, lives on branching forks of trees in forests at 3000' elevation. Stems are usually dark green, with scalloped margins but can be tinted reddish violet. Grows upright at first, but becomes pendant with time. Flowers are satiny and yellowish. This plant, as with all Rhipsalis, prefers filtered light and more humidity than other cacti. Soil should be largely composed of organic material, such as peat or sphagnum moss. Water thoroughly when soil is dry on surface, but should not be allowed to dry out completely. Prefers nighttime temperatures no cooler than 50 degrees Fahrenheit, especially in the winter, and daytime temperatures to 80 degrees Fahrenheit. Protect from frost.
