Fishbone Cactus

$20.00

Fishbone (or ric rac) cactus is one of the most exotic -- and easy -- cactus houseplants you grow! It shows off distinctive foliage -- the stems are serrated and lobed, like a backbone and have a thick, leathery texture that perfectly suits their dark green colour. If it gets enough light, ric rac cactus will reward you with stunning pink and white orchid-like flowers.

Medium to bright indirect light.

Water about once a week, when the top 1-2" of soil feels dry.

No - Can cause mouth irritation and digestive reaction.

A trailing houseplant, ric rac cactus grows best in hanging baskets. In nature, it cascades dramatically from tree branches in tropical rain forests.
