Ric Rac Orchid Cactus (Epiphyllum anguliger)
An Orchid Cactus with many virtues: unique foliage, free-blooming, and evening fragrance. The leaves, comprised of a series of deeply cut lobes create a saw-like tooth effect giving it the common name Ric Rac Cactus. Flowers arrive effortlessly from late summer through fall, and best of all, it's one species that doesn't need a winter chill to flower. The pure white 3½" blooms, backed by orange-bronze sepals and petals, open over many weeks. It makes an excellent subject for hanging containers.
Hardiness Zone 10
Bloom Season Fall, Summer
Sun Requirement Partial Sun
Grows to 1-2'
Minimum Temperature Indoors 35
Plant Type Easy Grower, Fragrant, Good for a Hanging Basket


Tips for Success:

• Totally restrict water from November until buds begin to appear
   in late winter/early spring; begin watering at this time.

• Keep nighttime temperatures from the mid 50°’s to
   high 30°'s during the winter.

• Blooms open sequentially over 2-3 weeks in the spring.

• Increase moisture and fertilizer in the summertime.

• Flowers form off of last years growth of summer.

• Only prune after flowering.

• Use a well drained, porous potting mix.

  1. Ethereal beauty Review by Halina
    How do you rate this product?

    I had this plant for a couple of years and neglected it....translation: it's hard to kill, which is always a plus. The foliage is reminiscent of a Dr Seuss book. Much to my surprise, it gave me 3 spectacular, exotic, fragrant blooms this month.... completely unexpected! WOW. The blooms are a yellowish tan, last about 24 hours, and smell like Hawaii. If you like the strange and unusual, you will love this plant. (Posted on 10/29/2016)

    Bought the Ric rac about two years ago, it was just one leaf. Now has several but I have one beatitful blossom!! The smell is unbelievable ! I want to post a photo but it's not available on here. Buy one you will not be disappointed !! Have patience though, your plant will take time to blossom because it's a baby. (Posted on 11/15/2015)
