Any tips on fish one cactus? Any advice welcomed big or small 🤗 I got it today at lowes and I saw on an app that it’s a cactus but also that it grows in the Mexican rainforest so I’m confused as to the care, watering tips, and temperature it prefers etc. Thank you!

Fishbone cactus thrives in indirect light but can tolerate periods of bright sun. Like most cacti, fishbone cactus houseplant does best when allowed to dry out between watering. During winter, cut watering in half and then reinstate when spring growth begins. Fertilize with a water-soluble cactus or orchid fertilizer in early spring. You can place your plant outside in spring and summer but do not forget to bring it in when temperatures cool. Best of all, the cactus will stand some neglect, so do not worry about it when you go on vacation.

I think @graceolivialee has one! How is it doing??🤔🥰

I have a baby under a grow light so...nothing compared to yours🤣🤩
@SirLiquorice any tips??
That seems to be some pretty useful info they have. I haven’t owned that exact one but it’s probably similar to my dragonfruit plant. It’s a tropical cactus so it needs more water than my others but still don’t want to water too often or it can rot. And they don’t like cold. Below 50 degrees Fahrenheit you may want to bring them in
So it’s weird that it can be a tropical cactus seems like that’s an oxymoron but that’s how they are I guess. A more drought tolerant than normal tropical plant that still requires care similar to a tropical plant but not exactly. Lol
@SirLiquorice thank you so much! It seems I need to find the Perfect balance of cactus and tropical lol but will definitely learn a lot 👏
@Simplydaisy yeah it’s a fun learning process. I’ve have some that make me work for it but it’s worth it.
