The rarest of the "ric rac" or "fishbone" cacti! This is an epiphytic cactus native to the tropical rainforests of Central America. The stems are flattened, deeply lobed, resembling a fishbone pattern. The growing tips of stems are an attractive red color, but then turn light green. The stems are completely spineless. The flowers are greenish-white and bloom during the night. It looks and grows best in part shade. In full sun the stems tend to bleach yellow and may burn. It is an epiphyte so it needs a well-draining soil and should not be planted in the ground, but planted on a branch or rock or kept in a pot where the long pendant stems can hang down. It also makes a great container plant or houseplant. (Pot size: 1 gallon)
