Rhipsalis disimilisRhipsalis clavata
Rhipsalis are epiphytic branching cacti, generally from tropical regions of Central and South America, though they are also fond in parts of Africa and Madagascar - the only cacti believed to be native in the "Old World". Their flowers vary in colour as do the berry coloured fruits which follow them.
