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. Some direct sun is okay.
• 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

Received in excellent condition. Very well packaged. The plant is green and healthy. I am very happy with this purchase.
Arrived in wonderful condition and is a great looking plant. I had to move recently and regimes my plants to friends (was driving across US/Canada border and couldn’t bring my plants). It’s great having a fish one cactus again—it’s one of my favorites!
