Fishbone Cactus

Epiphyllum anguliger

Regular price £15.00 £0.00

This unusual cactus is native to Mexico. It has long, green, flat wavy tems and because of these, is known as the 'fishbone' cactus or sometimes 'zigzag' cactus. The stems start growing upright only to trail down as they get older and if given that extra bit of attention it may even flower late summer.

The Fishbone cactus is easy to look after and requires little attention. Keep it in bright indirect light and let it dry out in between watering.

To propagate try cutting one of my stems off close to the soil and pop it in some water until roots form.

Growing pot size: 12cm diameter, 25cm height.

Pets: Safe
