LIGHT- Unlike most cacti the fishbone thrives in bright indirect light but can tolerate some periods of bright sun.


WATER- Like most cacti this plant does best when allowed to dry out between watering. Water once every 2-3 week's or once the top 2" of soil has dried.



PRUNING - Pruning in the spring & summer can help promote growth keeping your plant more compact & bushy. You can cut long overgrown stems with a sterile clippers close to the base. Allow this cutting to callus for a few days & then you can plant it in soil! Creating a new plant or helping your existing plant look fuller.


TOXICITY - this unique plant is non toxic so it's the perfect addition to your collection without worrying about you're furry friends.
