ABOUT OUR FISHBONE CACTUS
Hi, I’m Finley the Epiphyllum Anguliger. Please call me the fishbone cactus, my scientific name is way too complicated to pronounce and I prefer to keep things simple. I have no doubt my quirky and groovy foliage has caught your eye. I’d say my interesting look is the ideal ornamental plant for any bright living room or bedroom. I’ll admit I'm not your average looking cacti but I think that’s what makes me so special.
You find me enjoying the humid and warm environment of Mexico. Unlike most cacti I need regular watering and plenty of humidity. It’s very important to keep me out of direct sunlight and away from any drafts which will make my foliage curl from stress. I don’t mind a lower or medium light but I will naturally grow faster in a room with plenty of natural light.
My ‘under the sea’ vibes are exactly what your coffee table or bedside table is looking for. My not-so-subtle foliage is ready to transform your space like no other plant could.
