  • Best known for its long, arching stems coated with serrated leaf nodes, fishbone cactus is found in its habitat in groups, which hang from trees.
  • The plant originates in Mexico, where tropical rainforests create a moist, humid environment.
  • Rarely the plant will bloom with soft pink flowers that open at night and last only one day.
  • Fishbone cactus houseplant enjoys similar growing conditions as its cousin, the orchid.
  • Fishbone cactus boasts many colorful names. Ric Rac, Zigzag, and Fishbone orchid cactus are just a few of these descriptive monikers.
