Rhipsalis baccifera

The mistletoe cactus is a forest epiphyte from South America which would naturally grow on tree trunks, trailing succulent stems in a shaggy mound. It requires indirect light and little water. In the wild it would produce colourful flowers followed by white berries that give it the common name, but this won't happen wirh a single plant indoors.
