    Slender succulent stems form a hair-like shaggy hummock that will cascade over the sides of a pot or hanging basket. This unique plant may produce mistletoe-like berries when mature, but it is for the fab foliage that it is best-loved.

  • Home care: Water freely when in growth, but keep dryer in winter. Mist the leaves regularly with water to increase humidity and make sure the winter temperatures stay above 10°C. Repot each year.
