The Cactus 'Ric Rac', scientifically Epiphyllum anguliger, is a peculiar and visually striking houseplant, admired for its zigzagging stems and playful demeanor. Its succulent, green stems follow a rhythmic, alternate pattern, reminiscent of the stitches of ric rac trim. The 'Ric Rac' Cactus showcases a trailing and meandering growth habit, making it a whimsical choice for hanging planters, terrariums, or as an eccentric accent piece. At full growth, this cactus can achieve lengths of approximately 2-3 feet.
