Also known as a Rhipsalis Boliviana, this beautifully unique plant has a Cacti genus but has slightly different needs to a standard Cactus. With long flat stems this plant can grow over a metre in length and so is the perfect trailing plant. They are native to Jamaica and can easily be seen growing outdoors producing pretty white flowers!
The Bolivianum prefers to be kept on the dry side. Make sure that it is potted in well drained compost such as cactus compost to prevent soggy roots. It is best placed in a warm, bright spot which can include direct sunlight.

A hanging epiphytic cactus, with fairly long, spineless stems. The one I owned was a large mound, heavily branching. It made creamy-white flowers before dying. Stems are with 2 ribs (completely flat), undulate, with small areoles and dark green.
