Ric Rac Cactus is a fast-growing, tropical epiphyte cactus with cascading leaf-like stems that has a distinct zig-zagging structure.  Rarely flowers indoors.  Best growth in bright direct light and medium to dry well-drained soils.

MAINTENANCE: Low maintenance. Needs more water than standard a cactus- you can water once the top inch of soil is dry.  In winter months half the watering.  Liquid fertilizer for orchids can be used once a week in spring and summer and only once a month in winter.  Wear gloves when trimming the stems to avoid pricks.

PLANT NERD TIPS: Ric Rac Cactus will burn with too much direct sunlight.  Will grow well with normal humidity, but it is best to reduce humidity in winter.  NOTE: it is not recommended to directly mist a Ric Rac. 

Low levels of humidity, excess water, or dry soils can lead to pest infestation or illness.  If an early infestation is spotted it can be easily removed with a cotton swab soaked with alcohol.
