Previously classified in the genus Epiphyllum, Selenicereus anthonyanus has since been taxonomically reclassified. Either way, most people know it by its common name Zig Zag Orchid Cactus. Each broad, flat branch has a striking zig zag pattern along its edges. This species has large, red and white flowers with many thin petals. It is distinguished from Ric Rac Orchid Cactus (Disocactus anguliger) by its flowers and by the shape of the branches. Selenicereus anthonyanus has much more angular zig zags with flat sides and sharper points while the Ric Rac has more of a rounded sine-wave shape to its branch edges.
You will receive one unrooted cutting freshly cut from the parent plant within 24 hours of shipping. Each order will include a complete care instruction sheet to help you root your Zig Zag Orchid Cactus cutting and get it to thrive in your home. Orders will be shipped either by USPS First Class Mail or USPS Priority Mail- you choose at checkout. 
Selenicereus anthonyanus is a resilient plant that can tolerate a missed watering or two. As an epiphyte, the Zig Zag Orchid Cactus tends to grow aerial or adventitious roots that are used in its natural environment to climb trees as it reaches to the light in the tropical forests of Central America.
