Care for Rhipsalis oblon is fairly straightforward and follow basic succulent care guidelines. Bright indirect sunlight works great for indoor locations, and dappled or filtered sunlight is perfect for growing outdoors. A light well-draining soil does best; Allowing the soil to completely dry out between watering avoids over-watering and symptoms of root rot. Avoid freezing temperatures, anything near 32°F (0°C) is detrimental. Cuttings can easily be re-rooted and the seeds from the berries will readily sprout.
