    Can you identify this cactus for me?

    I wouldn't even like to try and guess on that one, it looks pretty young and cacti alter a fair amount as they mature.

    With the recent spate of inclement weather patterns, I've had to resort to purchasing a small plastic greenhouse affair to keep the rain off my Sempervivum collection. It seems a better option for me leaving the door completely open to let the flow of air around the plants.

    Rhipsalis baccifera

    Used to help run a cactus nursery in the 80's ; seldom if ever came across Rhipsalis ! The white fruits are interesting ; have you ever tried raising plants from seed ? Yours looks very healthy !

    They need to rest after only their first growing season. No water and cool temps all winter, some species need watering earlier than others, often just a light spray at first to get them going is best. Some of these actually survive in the wild on fog, with practically no rain.

    It is true (the deep pocket bit anyway). Having the ability to peel an orange in my pocket is truly a gift.

    Rhipsalis epiphytic cacti from Brazil

    @longk I think that is possible. They grow in tropical forests around Rio de Janeiro so are not used as much heat and dry air as desert cacti.
