67, part seven: Epiphyllum anguliger aka fishbone cactus
The first challenge with this plant is mastering its Latin name! The genus Epiphyllum belongs to the forest or orchid cacti, named for their orchid-like stems. Anguliger means ‘angle bearing’ and if you’ve seen the flattened stems of this plant you’ll know why! Its striking zigzag or ric rac patterns make E. anguliger a popular feature on Instagram. Find out how to care for this plant in the final part in On The Ledge’s trailing plants week.
