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

My plant is doing well. It arrived on time and in the best of condition.
Healthy and carefully packed as usual. :)
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!
