Fishbone Cactus | Epiphyllum Anguliger

I am a member of the night blooming cactus family, so if you treat me right, I will produce stunning flowers. They smell strongly of vanilla and are very beautiful, but are tragically short-lived: they open in the evening, bloom at night and die the next morning.

Useful to know:

Origin

I come from tropical rainforests in Mexico.

Height/Growth

I can trails 1-2m! I'm fast growing too.

Light

I prefer medium light conditions, so no sunlight please.

Water

Water me more during the summer and less during winter. Once a week alongside a good misting will do.

Temperature

I like average to warm conditions 16-25°C.

Feeding

Apply a weak cactus feed during the summer.

Grooming

If I'm getting too big too quickly, feel free to trim me back.

Care

I am susceptible to black rot disease so don't let me get too wet. Bacteria (erwinia cacticida) can eat away at my roots until nothing but a black mush is left!

Toxicity

Good news: I am pet-safe!

Fact

Don't confuse me with Selenicereus Anthonyanus - we're very similar but not the same plant. My flowers are golden yellow and the Selenicereus has purple and beige ones. click here to buy Fishbone Cactus.
