Rhipsalis Pachyptera is a lush succulent with a special scaly leaf shape. A new leaf without petiole grows on each leaf. The Rhipsalis can flower and form fruit with small flowers in the scales of the leaf.
BOTANY | The Rhipsalis Pachyptera is originally from Brazil. It grows there in the rocky soil.
PLANT CARE | The leaves, stems and roots of a succulent plant store water during the growing season. This way the plant survives periods of drought, so it doesn't matter if you occasionally forget to water it! Let the soil dry out completely before watering again. Too little water will cause the leaves to dry out. Too much water, the plant becomes limp and root rot can occur, try to prevent this, because a plant usually does not survive this. Give organic plant food once a year during the growing season.
When you know where the plant originally comes from, you can imitate that environment at home or at work as closely as possible. Then your plant will feel completely at home in no time.
Be careful with over watering. With succulents in particular, an occasional splash of water is sufficient. When water remains at the bottom of the pot, root rot occurs and the plant usually does not survive this.
The kraft paper pot is waterproof for several weeks to months, depending on the water needs of the plant. The pot is 100% biodegradable and plastic-free. As soon as moisture spots appear in the soil, the pot is no longer watertight and it is best to repot the plant. After repotting, the pot can be handed in with the waste paper to be recycled.
