Rhipsalis cereuscula is a bit of a mouthful, that is why it is more commonly called the Coral Cactus or Rice Cactus. Although called a cactus, it is an evergreen and epiphytic succulent.
Epiphytic simply means that it is a tree-dwelling plant. The Rice Cactus is native to South America. It can be found growing under trees in regions like Brazil Uruguay.
The Rhipsalis cereuscula gets its name from its interesting looking foliage. Rhipsalis is an Ancient Greek derivative for the word meaning “wickerwork”. This refers to the morphology of this plant.
