Epiphyllum anguliger - Fishbone Cactus

$ 16.00

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


You'll get a healthy Epiphyllum anguliger that meets our rigorous quality standards in a 4" nursery pot. No two plants are alike, and yours will have its own unique shape, size and personality; expect this natural variation from the photos.

Our plants include detailed care instructions as well as our Houseplant Best Practices guide, with information on how to repot, seasonal care and more!

We include shipping box warmers at no charge as needed. Got questions? Check out our FAQ!

Cute and well packaged

The fish bone cactus is so cool! Pistil’s packaged everything very well and the plants arrived with minimal stress. For being in a smaller pot, I was expecting there to be less growth, but the plant had several longer segments as well as new growth starting on others. I’m excited to see this one grow!

Exciting to get!

This has been on my plant “wish list” for quite awhile. It came packaged well and I’m excited to watch it grow!
