Houseplant Zig Zag Cactus

Houseplant Zig Zag Cactus


Another ideal plant for an inexperienced houseplant parent, this plant is striking and architectual, and really adds pizzaz to any decor. 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.


Care - Enough bright light, avoiding cold temperature drops, and no overwatering should enable this species to thrive indoors. In my home, I only water the plant when it feels light (I pick it up) and it thrives.
