The 'Fishbone Cactus' earned its name from its long wiggly stems, also known as the 'Zig Zag cactus'.
This funky little baby plant is the perfect addition to your windowsill collection.
Once the stems grow long enough, they will start to hang down under their own weight. You can thicken the plant out but cutting it back & propagating the stems - your plant will also branch out from wherever you cut it!
Light: Bright indirect light will promote the best growth. Older plants can withstand direct sunlight.
Water: Only water once the soil is completely dry then give a heavy water. When the leaves wrinkle, that's a sign that it's ready for watering.
Food: Not a requirement but if you choose to; use a light cacti fertiliser.
Humidity: Will thrive in a normal home humidity but will also tolerate dry air.
I love this strange cactus. A beautiful work of architectural art with its lush, fleshy leaves. Contrasts very well in the Ruby Red Alicante pot I bought for it. Moose Plant Shop had packed it up well and was delivered quickly. I am very impressed with this company, I know they are small, independent company but they are also are such value for money. Will it buy again from them.
Lovely cactus, arrived in beautiful condition with lovely new growth which is a bonus. 😊
