Fishbone Cactus

An easy-to-care-for plant with a ton of personality, the Fishbone cactus is a great option for all levels of green thumbs. Incorporate this quirky cactus into your home decor as a table-top companion, or show off the zig-zag foliage in a hanging basket or on the edge of a shelf as they grow and start to trail. As a jungle cactus, your Fishbone will need to be watered more often than its desert cousins. Although it is rare, Fishbone Cactus produce large, night-blooming flowers in Autumn that last only a day.

Plant Type

Cactus & Succulent
Cactus and succulents are plants known for their thickened, fleshy parts that function for water storage. These hardy and low maintenance plants need little to no attention.

Plant Feature

Pet Friendly
These are the perfect plants to keep in your home, even if you have curious pets that chew on almost everything – including plants. They are safe and non-toxic, so you don’t have to worry about your plants poisoning your cats and dogs.

Beginner plants are exceptionally forgiving and hardy. They are easy to keep alive and mostly low maintenance. These are perfect if you have a less-than-green thumb, or just starting to hone your gardening skills.

Low Maintenance
These are plants that you do not have to water too often and are excellent in various lighting conditions. This makes them perfect for any room in your house.

Light Care

Medium Light
These plants need filtered or dappled sunlight. You would want to place them in a well-lit room with windows, but away from direct light. A sunny window with sheer curtains is also a good idea.

Water Care

Medium Water
Plants with medium or moderate water needs should be watered once or twice a week. They need moist soil throughout the growing season for optimum growth and flowering. Water these plants when the soil is dry to touch.

Fertilizer Care

Low Fertilizer
These plants would appreciate a regular application of fertilizers during the growing season. They aren’t heavy feeders, and feeding at low rates is enough for these low-fertilizer plants to grow well.



Plant Care

Unlike most Cacti, the fishbone cactus is native to tropical climates. This cacti likes to be watered more often then the typical cactus and prefers to be in an area where it can receive moisture. To keep your plant thriving, place it in an area where it can receive filtered or indirect light. Make sure to keep the soil moist but not soggy. When repotting, we recommend using our Cactus and Succulent soil.
