Selenicereus anthonyanus, also called Ric Rac Orchid Cactus, Fish Bone Cactus, or Zig-Zag Cactus is a branched evergreen cactus. It is an easy to cultivate, fast growing epiphyte. This is an isolated species with no close allies. Its beautiful, fragrant, nocturnal flowers and unusual stems, that resemble a fish skeleton make it a must-have for any collector. Ric Rac Orchid Cactus needs a compost containing plenty of humus and sufficient moisture in summer. Flowers only open for one night and are very fragrant, as to attract nocturnal pollinators. Fish Bone Cactus looks great in a hanging basket or on a ledge if it is allowed to trail over the edge. If you want it upright you will need to stake it. They actually "like" to be root-bound to produce the most stunning, fragrant flowers.
