Rhipsalis Unrooted Cuttings Variety Pack

Rhipsalis Unrooted Cuttings Variety Pack



3 or 6 Varieties of Unrooted Cuttings


Looking to start your Rhipsalis collection? Unrooted cuttings can be a great way to start from scratch! Like any succulent, Rhipsalis is an easily propagated plant! We have around 13 species in the greenhouse. The more cuttings you purchase, the more variety you will receive! We always include a "Rhipsalis Map" with drawings of your specific cuttings complete with names to help you identify which cuttings are which variety.




We offer 3 Varieties & 6 Varieties. If you would like more than 6 varieties you may order 2 of the 6 variety option & we will add as many as we have available. We have at least 10 varieties at a time available, most of the time more, but if 2 orders are placed at the same time we guarantee we will do our best to include as many different species as we can!



Make sure to check out our 3" pots that work well as decorative pots for your cuttings!

3" White Glazed Red Clay Raised Texture Pot

3" Rose Gold & White Ceramic Pot




    Feel free to inquire about specific varieties you would like to receive. 

    For the 3 variety pack we will fill 1 request. 

    For the 6 variety pack we will fill 3 requests. 

    Keep in mind, certain species of Rhipsalis are more expensive, rare, etc. than others. Those varieties, such as Rhipsalis paradoxa, are sent in smaller amounts than the more common & less expensive species, such as Rhipsalis baccifera. 

    You may also let us know which varieties you already have & we will do our best to not include those OR if you have a preference of how you would like the varieties to look (for example, if you like a flat leaf more than a skinny stem) we will do our best to accomodate your requests.

    Your new cuttings will need to be planted in a well drained soil in a pot with a drainage hole. You can also purchase a rooting hormone, such as Rootone, to stimulate root growth, but succulents don’t usually need any help. Though not really necessary, this could give the cuttings a head start by promoting root growth at the cut ends. 


    Since your cuttings have already been in the package for 2-3 days (depending on how far away you are from Atlanta), they should have had planting of time to heal & scab over. We suggest planting them in soil as soon as you get them. 

    Fill your pot with potting soil & place your cuttings into the dirt, just deep enough for the cut end to be planted & deep enough to keep them from toppling over. You can fill one pot up with as many cuttings as you’d like, depending on the size of the pot & cutting.

    We provide fashionable 3" pots that would fit 1 large cutting or if you cut the pieces we have sent you into smaller divisions, more than 1 of them could fit in a 3" pot. If you are using a 6" pot, you could fit 2 large cuttings or a larger number of divided ones. It's up to you!

    Finally, cover the cuttings lightly with more soil to help stabilize them  & to give the roots more to hold on to.

    Lastly, you’ll want to saturate your soil with water. Do not water again until your soil has dried out completely. Roots should form in a few weeks & you should get new growth in 1 or 2 months!


    Your cutting will be wrapped in paper. When opening be sure to not tear into the inner paper as that is the one which has the names & pictures to help you identify your plants. You will receive a "Rhipsalis Map" with sketches drawn for your specific cutting with the name of it labeled under the sketch. If you have any trouble figuring out which is which feel free to message us! We do have a few varieties that were sold to us without tags. If we identify any of them after you’ve received them we will message you with updates.

    - Plant in a pot with a drainage hole & well drained soil.
    - Water thoroughly once every 1.5 - 2 weeks (or when top soil is dry 1-2" down). Water until you can see liquid fall through your pot’s drainage hole.
    - Place in area with partial shade to full shade.


    In order for your Rhipsalis to thrive, you will need to plant in a pot with a drainage hole & well drained soil. Here at Horticult, we start our containers with approximately 1” of PermaTill (a small, expanded slate gravel; depending on size of container). If you don’t have PermaTill, any type of small, light weight pebble will work! Fill the rest of the pot or hanging basket with regular potting soil. Once you’ve planted your succulent, you may then use the same gravel you used at the bottom of the pot to spread around the top of the pot for a decorative element. This top gravel will also weigh down the soil, so when you water your plants the soil will not spill over the top. With that being said, the PermaTill is not terribly necessary & if you plant your Rhipsalis solely in a well drained potting mix it should do well.

    Rhipsalis works best in a hanging basket or in a pot on a plant stand. In their natural state you can find them in tropical regions growing out of trees where they pour from branch nooks or located on rock faces falling down crevasses. The stems grow & look their best when hanging. If the stem touches any organic matter (soil, etc.) it will emit roots at that spot. These roots are healthy for the plant, but if you already have an established root system & find them more of an eye sore than beneficial you can clip them off with sharp scissors. If you are interested in propagation you can use this method before you clip the stems for cuttings to ensure root stimulation & growth. 


    Rhipsalis is a succulent. By definition, succulents are plants that store water in their leaves. The water gets to the leaves through the roots. This is why it’s important to saturate your plant when watering. The water must get to the roots, so the roots can suck up the water to the leaves! With that being said, it is extremely important your soil be allowed to dry. If a succulent’s roots are sitting in standing water it will first bring too much water to the leaves, which will cause them to become soggy & fall off, & then cause root rot, eventually leading to your plant’s demise! While this sounds awful & is ultimately detrimental, it is easily avoided! Wait until your soil is bone dry before watering again :) Easy peezy!


    Unlike most succulents, Rhipsalis thrives in partial to full shade. As previously stated, in it's natural state they can be found hanging from trees; pouring out of branch nooks & tree crotches. In these areas Rhipsalis are shaded by the tree tops for most of the day. As a house plant, Rhipsalis enjoys a simulation of it's natural habitat, thus partial to full shade for most of the day is crucial. All things considered, light morning sun will not hurt your Rhipsalis. Some of the larger, more broad stemmed varieties (R. pachyptera or R. elliptica) can take an increased amount of sunlight because of their shape.

    Plants that flourish in shade are easier to place inside your home. You can hang your Rhipsalis deep inside a room with a bright window, in east or west facing windows that don't receive daily full sun, or rooms that receive little to no sunlight at all. Until you have to bring your sun succulents inside for the winter, the shade aspect of Rhipsalis is a drastically understated benefit.


    If kept outside, due to the fact Rhipsalis are tropical plants they will need to be brought inside when the temperature drops.



    We have named our Rhipsalis varieties according to the tags or names classified by the distributors we purchased the parent plant(s) from. In light of the fact that Rhipsalis has over 50 varieties that are sometimes extremely similar, the variety names are commonly misused & unfortunately extremely difficult for us to verify. Please rely on the pictures posted in the listing, as well as the name, if looking for specific varieties.
