Disocactus Anguliger, Ric Rac Orchid Cactus
Commonly called Ric Rac Cactus, Disocactus anguliger is one of the true species (non-hybrid) varieties of Orchid Cactus. It has branches with wavy edges almost like a sine wave. Along with Epiphyllums, Disocactus anguliger is a true member of the cactus family that has adapted over time to life in the tropical forests of Central America. Not only has it adapted to a non-desert environment, but it has also learned to climb trees and live as an epiphyte. The plant develops aerial or adventitious roots that grab onto the rough wood surfaces of trees to help the grow upward toward the forest canopy in search of light. Although the branches themselves (as a cactus, it has no true leaves) are eye-catching because of their shape the Ric Rac cactus also produces large white flowers as it matures. This plant is ideal for a hanging pot as the branches will drape over the sides to producs a stunning, cascading display.
This orchid cactus is easy to care for and resilient enough to withstand missed waterings.
