Flowering Rhipsalis Cactus


From time to time you might notice the watermark on my photos says "Inspire Bohemia.com" and that's because Inspire Bohemia is my other website. My desire to start this site was born from five years of working on Inspire Bohemia. When I first started out I was highly motivated by bohemian decor, design, and fashion, but as time wore on, I got into gardening and that theme quickly dominated my site's content. These days, I've been writing a lot about my recent journey through Europe, so travel is the name of the game. 

But gardening is still so much a part of my every day life, and I haven't shared much garden stuff lately.  When I do, they tend to take on an informative nature and get wordy, not to mention too long and photo heavy.  I take so many photos throughout the year that it's almost impossible to share them all unless I do it a little bit at a time, over time. That's where The Succulent Artist comes in! I have created this space to give myself total uninhibited freedom to post without pause and without need for elaboration (well, at least not all the time)… ;)

So, without further ado, may I present to you this lovely Rhipsalis.  I'm not sure the exact name, perhaps Rhipsalis baccifera?  Does anyone out there know?  Anyway, Rhipsalis is a genus of epiphytic cacti and it grows really well in the sun, grows and propagates very fast, and sprouts tons of tiny white blooms when established.  

Check out this post and this post for more Rhipsalis photos!
