Fishbone Cactus - 4" pot

Size Chart
Regular price $17.85

Ok, this plant is fun, look at those zig zagging leaves! Better yet, it is super easy to care for and great for a first-time plant owner. It has been known to bloom with pink and white flowers when it’s in the perfect growing environment. A natural trailing plant, this one loves a hanging planter to allow the foliage to cascade down. 

While it is a cactus and can handle drought conditions this variety does prefer more moisture as it is a rainforest cactus. Will love a high humidity environment and a drink once the top inch of soil is dry. A Leca ball bottom layer under the soil or a pot with drainage is definitely recommended. Pet friendly.

Epiphyllum Anguliger aka Fishbone Cactus aka Ric Rac comes in a 4" plastic growers pot, plant "trails" more than has height,  ranges around 10". 

Care Level: Mostly easy
Lighting : Bright, indirect

Cacti Overview

Cacti are members of the Cactaceae family – boasting thousands of species that have made their way into people’s homes one way or another. The most popular Cacti houseplants are categorized into two distinct groups – desert cacti and forest cacti. The former are the spiky ones that Wile E Coyote has a love-hate relationship with, while the latter are ones that grow in rain forests and look quite different than their usually spikey aplomb (i.e., Christmas Cactus). Desert Cacti are the toughest of houseplants – like cockroaches, they’d probably survive nuclear doom – but let’s not find out. Unusual, unique and elegant, you’ll encounter cacti of all shapes and sizes, and they make for lovely housewarming gifts for the novice plant daddy/mommy in the making.

Majestic fishbone cactus

Ordered one of these during the 50% off sale and it is more beautiful than I imagined! I didn’t expect it to be this large, it’s branches are already super long and plump 💚 One of my favourite plants atm.
