Standard Cyclopedia of Horticulture

Hatiora (an anagram of Hariota). Cactaceae. Upright cacti, allied to Rhipsalis.

Plants erect, branching: branches short......., in 2's or 3's from tops of older branches, ....... spineless, bearing several abortive areoles along..... sides and each a large woolly terminal one from which arise the fl. and succeeding branches: fls. terminal; ovary globular, naked or nearly so; sepals usually in 2 rows, the outer ones broader and short, the inner ones larger and more petal-like; petals distinct, narrow toward the base; stamens distinct, erect, borne on the disk; stigmas 5, erect, white. Closely related to Rhipsalis, with which as Hariota it is often united, as it was in the Cyclo. of Amer. Hort.—Some 6 or 7 species of Hariota have been described, but most of these are true species of Rhipsalis; 2 were recognized by K. Schumann. The following is in cult. Hariota, DC. (1834) is a homonym of Hariota, Adans. (1763), and hence the name Hatiora has been substituted.
