Epiphyllum anguliger - Fishbone Cactus
Epiphyllum anguliger is a striking epiphytic cactus that looks like something out of fantasy. Its deeply lobed, succulent foliage creates a zig zag form, earning it the nickname, Fishbone Cactus. A member of the Orchid Cactus genus, once this plant reaches maturity, it produces gorgeous, ornate flowers with a subtle fragrance. As with other jungle cactus varieties, plenty of light and conservative watering keeps this plant happy.
• Light: Bright indirect or dappled light
• Water: Water when the top 2" of soil feels dry
• Considerations: The Fishbone Cactus can be quite thirsty in spring and summer, but requires little water over winter. More sun in early fall will help flowers develop

I received my ric rac cactus within a few days and it’s so healthy! Had new growth when I got it and has more new growth after 4 or 5 days now. Repotted today and can’t wait to see it grow. Wouldn’t hesitate to buy from them again.
The plant was well packed, no breaking branches, no soils spilled. I was surprised. It arrived at a perfect condition with 10 stems in the pot. I recommend this website to anyone. Thanks. I love the plant.
I love my sweet little fish one. He fits right in
