Epiphyllum anguliger "Ric Rac Cactus" 4"


Also commonly called the "Fishbone Cactus" or the "Zig Zag Cactus" due to flat and broad stems that have wavy, sometimes erratic margins. And then all the sudden, a super tropical-looking flower can appear ranging from cream to yellow and maroon. It's almost like someone was handy with Photoshop in real life as the flower doesn't seem to belong to the plant.

Epiphyllum  “Orchid Cactus”

Light: This tropical cactus prefers intense bright light with some light filtered sun. An eastern facing exposure would be ideal. 

Water: Because these are epiphytes, they can be mounted on a plaque or slatted basket. If potted, use a succulent mix and allow the soil to dry almost by half before watering thoroughly. A light mix that dries quickly is ideal. 

Environment: Epiphyllums do best in warm, humid, and shady spots that replicate a tropical forest. Although humidity is preferred, it is quite tolerant of drier conditions. Be sure there is no airflow from heating or AC in the direction of the plant.

Toxicity: No toxicity reported

Of Note*:

  • This plant easily propagated from cutting its fleshy leaves and rooting the pieces in water or soil
  • Epiphyllum can flower but the flower is fairly short lived 
*When planting in a pot without a drainage hole, avoid over watering by estimating 25% of the container’s overall volume, with appropriate drainage materials incorporated when planting. Printable Care Sheet
