Zig Zag Cactus (Epiphyllum anguliger)
Very similiar to the Selenecerius anthonyanus and also commonly called a rick rack cactus.This fast growing, epiphytic cactus produces numerous zig-zag shaped stems (hence the common name) that are generally a slightly lighter shade of green than its cousin the Ric Rak Cactus. The new growth on the Zig Zag can be a quite pronounced reddish pink.
The only thing cooler than its deeply lobed, fleshy stems are it's large white flowers! Their messy yet skulptural habit makes them an awesome additon to any plants shelf especially when paired with more linear plants like the Rhipsalis puniceodiscus.
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.
Likes bright indirect light and humidity but will also handle a bit of shade.
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!
Greeting your Rick Rack Cactus
These plants are shipped in a 1.5L nursery pot that is wrapped in a calico bag to keep the soil in during transport. They will fit any pot from our Classic Pot Range.
Jungle Cacti are super low maintenance. Still, it's good to know what they like and are used to in the wild
