Description for Fishbone Cactus

Fishbone cactus boasts many colorful names. 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.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Fish bone cactus, rick rack cactus, zig-zag cactus Pink Mid Spring. 13 or 15cm Easy to grow

Planting and care

The trailing stems offer an interesting feature for the home landscape. Choose a basket or unglazed pot for the cactus to enhance evaporation and prevent the plant from getting too wet. You can do a hanging basket, tabletop display or terrarium installation. Either way, the fishbone cactus will enhance and entertain. Use gloves when handling the plant, since it has tiny fine hairs, which will stick into skin and cause discomfort.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun to Partial Shade Well-drained soil Medium 40 degrees C. Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Fishbone Cactus

    Like most cacti, fishbone cactus houseplant does best when allowed to dry out between watering. During winter, cut watering in half and then reinstate when spring growth begins. Fertilize with a water-soluble cactus or orchid fertilizer in early spring. You can place your plant outside in spring and summer but do not forget to bring it in when temperatures cool. Best of all, the cactus will stand some neglect, so do not worry about it when you go on vacation.
