Epiphyllum anguliger, also known as the Fish Bone Cactus or Ric Rac Cactus, is a unique and interesting plant with flat, wavy stems that resemble fish bones. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Epiphyllum anguliger prefers bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some lower light conditions, but too much direct sunlight can scorch the leaves.

  2. Water: Water the plant when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Water thoroughly, and allow any excess water to drain out of the bottom of the pot. During the growing season (spring and summer), you can water the plant more frequently. In the winter, reduce watering to avoid overwatering.

  3. Humidity: Epiphyllum anguliger prefers moderate to high humidity levels. You can increase humidity by misting the leaves with water, using a humidifier, or placing a tray of water near the plant.

  4. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for this plant is between 60-80°F (15-27°C).

  5. Soil: Epiphyllum anguliger prefers a well-draining, slightly acidic potting mix. You can use a mixture of peat moss, perlite, and sand.

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize the plant once a month during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer.

  7. Pruning: Prune the plant to maintain its shape and remove any dead or yellowing stems.

  8. Propagation: Epiphyllum anguliger can be propagated by stem cuttings. Take a stem cutting with a few leaf segments, and let it dry for a few days. Then, plant the cutting in a pot with moist potting mix, and keep it in a warm, humid location with bright, indirect light.

  9. Pests and Diseases: Epiphyllum anguliger is relatively pest-free, but watch out for mealybugs and spider mites. Overwatering can cause root rot.

Remember to keep your plant away from pets and children, as it's toxic when ingested. Epiphyllum anguliger is a unique and beautiful plant that can add a touch of interest to any room with its distinctive, fish bone-like stems.
