Rick Rack Cactus (Selenecerius anthonyanus)

Subscription Save

With more identities than a secret agent, the Selenecerius anthonyanus is commonly known by many names, including the fishbone cactus, rick rack cactus, zig-zag cactus and the St. Anthony's Rik-Rak. It is also referred on occasion as an orchid cactus.

What is certain is that this fast growing, epiphytic cactus has a bunch of awesome, wandering, zig-zag shaped stems that are lime green at the tips and darker at the base.

The only thing cooler than its deeply lobed, fleshy stems are it's huge, dark violet and highly fragrant flowers! These super low maintenance plants make one hell of a statement in any part of the house.

    Caring for your Rick Rack Cactus (Selenecerius anthonyanus)


    Likes bright indirect light and humidity but will also handle a bit of shade.

    Managing Growth

    When they arrive at your door, these beauties will have approximately 2-4 main stems that are between 30-60cm long. Their stems can get up to 1m long and 15cm wide. If you have the space they make an outstanding addition to any well lit living room. If you don't have the space, you should probably start throwing stuff out or looking for a bigger place because these plants are awesome!


    Water when the top 2-3cm of soil in the pot dries out during the Spring and Summer months. Water much less during Autumn and Winter.

    For more detailed care information, please refer to the our Plant Care Guides.

    Our special eco packaging

    No Plant Stress

    Our plant packaging is designed by people know how to keep plants fresh and healthy in transit. Your plants will enjoy a comfortable trip directly from our greenhouse to your door in just a few of days. Your plant will not have to deal with the stress of being bare rooted for transport (how most plants are sent) and you won’t have to deal with the mess and fuss of potting up your new plant when you receive it.

    Stability Support

    The plastic pot will be wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in place, it will then be tied into a specially designed cardboard insert which will keep it stable and upright throughout its journey. The insert will be glued in place on top of your cardboard wrapped ceramic pot to hold it down and your plant up!

    No Re-Potting

    Your plant will come in its plastic pot which we make sure fits perfectly in whichever ceramic pot you choose. Our packaging has been designed to allow us to send your beautiful ceramic pot along with your plant, fully potted, yep in soil, together in the same box.

    Fully Recyclable

    The thing that we’re most proud of is that our packaging is fully recyclable and re-useable so you don’t have to feel bad about generating more packaging waste. In fact you should feel awesome because ordering from us, online, will generate way less emissions than if you were to drive to the nursery to buy a plant. The only plastic you get will be the plastic pot that your plant comes in and these can be re-used or recycled.
