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 by growing upright, but as they grow and get longer, they start to trail down. Making the fishbone cactus a brilliant hanging plant or displayed on a plant pedestal table.

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.
