Cactus and Succulents forum: Rhipsalis Plants

I absolutely enjoy the diversity of this plant type! I own 4-5 varieties and have them throughout my house. The problem is.....a couple seem to make a turn for the worse with no apparent sign of distress. I find numerous stems laying around the base of the plant, yet I see no reason as to why. The tags from when I bought them suggest "low light", but online I see many prefer light.
Could someone please advise what I could do before I loose a couple of my plants altogether.
Thanks so much in advance

I have a few Rhipsalis myself, i love the unusual look of these plants.Mine are all outside in partial to filtered sunlight.You have to introduce the sunlight slowly or they will burn.They turn a beautiful red after being in some sun.I find it helps if you can get them IDed correctly research where it's from & go from there.My R.'sulcata' bloomed for the 1st. time this year.
I also hang mine under tree's so they are sheltered some from rain,wind,sun.

A green thumb comes only as a result of the mistakes you make while learning to see things from the plants point of view!!
