In the wild it clings to the trunk of trees by sending out aerial roots. Here, a stray ‘branch’ is attaching itself to the trunk of a young mango tree in my backyard.
The Fish bone cactus is also known as the Zig zag plant or Ric-rac cactus. I’m growing it in pots in regular cactus potting mix. It gets filtered sunlight in the mornings and full sun in the afternoons. I never knew that the species bloomed until (recently), I looked it up on the internet and saw how gorgeous the blooms were. Maybe now I should go and hunt for the flowering variety?!;)
