Amélie, known in the plant world as Rhipsalis, is a great shaggy-haired friend to have around. Her tousled green locks will cascade over the sides of a pot and her forgiving nature when it comes to watering make her an excellent choice for a houseplant. With loads of quirky personality and an easy-care disposition, mistletoe cactus (Rhipsalis spp.) should be next up on your must-have plant list. All rhipsalis are easy to grow and thrive in containers. Despite being commonly called cactus, their care requirements are a little different, as they need a bit more water and prefer humidity.

Ensure that your mistletoe cactus is planted in well-drained soil. Potted plants benefit from a saucer filled with rocks and water to increase the ambient humidity in the home interior. The plant rarely needs fertilizing and has few other needs except moderate light and even moisture. Fertilize with a half dilution of cactus food once per month. Water frequently in spring and summer, but suspend water in winter. If any of the stems are damaged, you can trim them off with a sharp, sterile knife. Use these as cuttings to start new Rhipsalis mistletoe cactus. Native to tropical environments, Rhipsalis appreciate a good misting now and again. Consider working in a misting bottle to your watering routine.
