We think this Fishbone cactus would be an amazing addition to any houseplant collection with its sculptured foliage. Bring the rainforest to your living room with this small trailing plant that is actually a cactus!  It’s also known as the Ric Rac Cactus.

At first, its fishbone-like leaves will grow upright but as it matures the leaves will trail over the edges of the pot. The leaves have a zig-zag shape as though someone has cut them with a pair of dressmaking scissors!

Epiphyllum Anguligar will look amazing in a hanging pot or spilling from a high shelf, its fascinating shaped leaves providing a really structural focal point in any room. Think plant with a mad hairdo!

Hailing from the moist rainforest of Mexico, this small houseplant will need a little more water than you would usually expect for a cactus and it also likes a little misting of the leaves. It’s an epiphyte and grows on trees in the wild and the fishbone type leaves are adapted to anchor the plant to the host.

If you’re really lucky, the Ric Rac Cactus can produce white flowers in the right conditions - these flowers are quite large and have a lovely, heavy scent.  The flowers only open at night. Not every plant produces flowers though, it will depend on the humidity and position, as well as the correct amount of water.

It requires little maintenance and it is a very good plant for beginners to the joys of houseplants.

You could give this amazing houseplant as a gift - we’ll even deliver the plant along with a free, handwritten card.  You can note your gift message at the basket stage of checkout and we’ll organise the rest! We’ll leave out the paperwork of course.
