Fishbone Cactus – Epiphyllum Anguiliger

The Fishbone Cactus is an unusual plant with a collection of droopy but firm fleshy green leaves that have waved edges, sort of like the outline of the skeleton of a fish!

This cactus is low maintenance, and very interesting to look at! You only need to water it every two to three weeks and pop it in a spot with part sun ? part shade and just enjoy as it matures and takes shape to be individually unique!

If you give this plant the perfect conditions it may push out a flower for you!? These flowers have white petals that are almost shaped like an air plant?thin and spikey!
