A really stunning, ornamental cactus with funky foliage and glorious flowers. The leaves have beautifully wavy margins that oscillate along the stem and give rise to its common names: Fishbone Cactus or Zig Zag Cactus. Flowers, when produced, are creamy white, with long lemon yellow to orange-brown outer petals, and are heavily scented. Other names include Moon Cactus and Rick-Rack (or Ric-Rac) Cactus. Epiphyllum Anguliger looks best displayed as a hanging plant.
