The Fishbone Cactus is not your average cactus. It's actually a tropical cactus, native to Mexico and is perfect for cactus lovers who don't have the right conditions to keep the typical desert cacti alive. It does well without direct sunlight and also thrives in humid conditions. Grown for its unique, angular toothed stems, the fishbone cactus is also commonly referred to as zig zag cactus, ricrac cactus, and the orchid cactus.
Fishbone Cactus is a low-maintenance plant that grows well indoors. In contrast to desert cacti, the fishbone cactus appreciates regular watering. As a general rule, you should water your cactus once the top 2-3 inches of the soil have dried out. It is important to avoid watering your fishbone cactus with water that is too cold as it can shock the roots. Fishbone cacti are also sensitive to chemicals in municipal water so if your water is hard you should allow it to sit out for 24 hours before watering your cactus, or use distilled water.
Keep temperatures between 60 to 78 degrees Fahrenheit and humidity above 60 percent.
