The Ric Rac Orchid Cactus (Disocactus anguliger) doesn't bear leaves but stems. Off these stems, orchid-like fragrant flowers bloom after the third year of growth. Their unique zig-zag stem form hangs beautifully from a basket. In the wild, this epiphyte will attach to tree branches near the top of the tree and arch downward. You may even recognize their small aerial roots on the underside of the stem when it's in higher humidity. This low-maintenance plant can grow 2-3 feet tall and wide.

If you're a night owl, you may get to see this one bloom and enjoy its nocturnal pollinators! The blooms are orchid-like and vary from white, pink to maroon with starburst blossoms to go with the night sky! To promote blooming, move it to a shady, cool spot in the winter months at 52°-57°F. Give it three years of growth before she's mature enough to bloom! In the meantime, enjoy its unusual stem shape of zig-zagging!
