Rhipsalises are such dreamy plants for anyone starting their plant parenthood. They are a group of cacti that have developed to survive in forests, many hanging from branches like ferns.

Commonly known as the mistletoe cactus, is an epiphytic cactus which originates from Central and South America, the Caribbean, and Florida. It is also found throughout the tropics of Africa and into Sri Lanka where it is known in Sinhala as nawahandi. (Wikipedia)

 

SUNLIGHT

Bright indirect light

 

WATER

These plants are drought tolerant. Water only when the kokedama is light and dry. Over watering causes the roots to rot and it is fairly hard for the plant to recover. 

Water every 2 -3 weeks in the warmer months (in summer check weekly especially in warmer days and may need watering weekly) and monthly in winter.

 

HOW TO WATER?

Submerge the whole ball in a bowl, bucket or sink up to the top of the ball. While it is light and dry, you may need to hold it down until the bubbles disappear. Then let it sit in water for 15 minutes. Take it out of the water and let drip dry. 

 

FERTILISER, PLANT FOOD, SOIL CONDITIONER

Fertilise monthly in spring and summer to encourage growth and NONE in winter. In the colder months, this plant generally hibernates. Therefore feeding with fertiliser won’t make it do much. 

We use Munash organics with our plants and kokedamas as their products are gentle to the plants, plus they are ORGANIC! With the plant food, every 2 months is all you need to do.

Soil conditioners such as Seasol, is also good to use during the growth season. Therefore, using it fortnightly when you water the kokedama is also good for the devil’s ivy.

  

GENERAL CARE

These care instructions serve as a guide only. The conditions in every home is different such as light, humidity, draft, heat, etc. and you know your home better than anyone else. These all affect the health and condition of your kokedama. We advise that you do a little bit of research prior to purchasing your kokedama.
