Large Epiphyllum anguliger 'Fishbone Cactus'

This unique looking ornamental cactus looks stunning as a hanging plant when it can really show off it's amazing fishbone-like leaves. As the plant matures and the leaves become longer and more pendent like and hang over the edges of the pot. As well as having amazing foliage the Fishbone Cactus can also produce a few white flowers if the conditions are good.

This rather large plant will need a rather large planter. Get in touch to find out what the options are. We also offer a full delivery and installation service (London only), if required.

Please note, there can be a 1-2 week lead time for our extra large plants.

Delivery / Installation (London only)

We only offer our extra large plants to customers based in London. We deliver personally with a large van to ensure they arrive in the best possible condition, hence the higher delivery cost. We're happy to advise on placement and general plant care when delivering.

Watering

Water regularly and thoroughly so the water reaches the plant’s deeper roots. Allow the top soil to dry out between each watering and make sure the roots are never sitting in water for a prolonged period.

Light requirements

Happy with plenty of indirect light but can tolerate fairly low light conditions.

Care tips

  • Avoid placing the planter next to radiators or draughty windows. 
  • Carefully wipe the leaves from time-to-time to remove any dust.
  • Prune out any brown or dried leaves by cutting as close the the base of the plant as possible.
  • Use some fertiliser during warmer months i.e. April to September (little and often is best for consistent growth).
  • For more detailed plant care instructions, check out our Plant Care 101 guide.
