Mexican epiphytic Epiphyllum Fishbone, or more colorfully, zigzag cactus, looks more like a wild green lightning storm sparking out of its pot. It blooms in the dark of night; huge red/white/yellow frills like a ballet dance of the flowers, lovely to see. Smooth, thick satiny green with deeply lobed edges, the foliage pokes straight up and will eventually flop over to a length of 3', and trail nicely. As if that weren't enough, delicious oval fruits appear that taste like a kiwi fruit, complete with the crunchy black seeds. Fishbone first made the rounds in Europe starting in 1846, loved everywhere ever since.
