The coral cactus (Rhipsalis cereuscula) belongs to Cactaceae (the Cactus family). It is a treelike cuctus that is native from the central part of Briazil to Uruguay. It is an epiphyte that grows in seasonal forests on the Atlantic side. The stems are multi-branched, cylindrical jointed that have tiny bristle-like spines. These jointed stems look like chubby grains of rice. It bears clusters of funnel-shaped, up to 2 cm in diameter, glossy greenish-white flowers. Following bloom, it bears tiny white berries.
