Rhipsalis sp.: (pilocarpa?) one of Brad's plants
Rhipsalis are epiphytic cacti that generally like heat, humidity, and maybe a bit less light than most terrestrial genera. Various species are found throughout the tropics but it is assumed they originated in South America. The Cactaceae is exclusively a new-world family.
