Ric Rac, Zigzag and Fishbone orchid cactus are just a few of these descriptive monikers. The names refer to the alternate pattern of the leaves along a central spine that resembles a fish skeleton. This stunning plant is an epiphytic specimen that can grow in low soil situations where other organic media are present. Growing fishbone cactus is easy even for the so-called “black thumb” gardener. Bring in a fishbone cactus houseplant and enjoy the crazy zigzag pattern of its succulent foliage.
The fishbone cactus forms long flat and succulent stems resembling a fishbone. Hence the name. It’s also sometimes called a zig zag or ric rac orchid cactus.
Fishbone cacti are easy to care for and very low maintenance. So if you tend to always kill your plants, give this one a try. It might even show off some flowers if the conditions are right.
The stem leaves of the fishbone cactus start out
Place your fishbone cactus in a bright spot with indirect light. If it happens to get some direct sunlight, no worries it can handle it, but keep it limited.
Fishbone cacti originate from the moist and humid rainforest. Not from the dry desert, like most cacti.
This means that your fishbone cactus likes a bit more water than the average cactus. Make sure it gets enough water, especially during spring and summer. Mist it occasionally for a little added humidity.
