Epiphyllum Anguliger or 'Ric Rac' Cactus is an epiphytic cactus from Central America. Ric Rac is an easy going plant perfect for beginners, or any collector looking to add a quirky hanging plant to their arsenal. We can let the soil dry out in between waterings and provide indirect light for your 'Ric Rac'. Though it will handle a bit of direct sun. Epiphyllum are also known for their ease of propagation. Simply snip a piece of the plant off, plant your cutting in a bit of soil and it will root effortlessly if treated as normal. 


Epiphyllum will grow beautifully outdoors, but they are not winter hardy and should be brought inside once temperatures dip below 55 degrees. Spring through Fall, keep your Alocasia in Full Shade and make sure it is not receiving any hot, direct sun. Water once your plant has had a chance to dry out, usually about every 4-6 days with moderate temperatures. You may need to water your Alocasia every 2-3 days during periods of extreme heat.
