This is a truly unusual plant that originates from the rainforest of Mexico. Its uniquely shaped zig zag stems resemble a fishbone, hence the name! The stems start out growing upwards but as they mature and grow longer they eventually trail down.
The height/length of the plant is approximately 25cm and the nursery pot diameter is 15cm. All Leaf & Pot plants come in a nursery pot and we recommend that you choose a ceramic pot that is up to 3cm bigger in diameter than the nursery pot.
Your plant likes a regular watering during the summer months but as with all cactus, let him dry out between watering.
Your Fishbone Cactus likes a light, bright spot. Towards the end of the summer, make sure he gets a little light sun during the day to encourage him to flower.
Your Fishbone Cactus can stand a little neglect (phew!). Stems growing too long? Give him a haircut, it won't harm him! Each Leaf & Pot plant comes with detailed care instructions so your plant can live his best life!
