Cereus Forbesii Monstrose
Description: An interesting variation of the popular Cereus Forbesii cactus.
This lovably abnormal thing is a monstrose (monster) form of Cereus forbesii (aka C. validus), meaning that it exhibits naturally occurring mutant growth, in the form of sculptural club-like shapes. Woolly areoles and short black spines appear on top of these myriad bizarro stems, which kind of resemble rounded, clenched fists. It is excellent for windowsill or dish garden culture. While people tend to think of cacti as sun lovers, this mutant variety is thrilled to bask in shade or filtered light. Prefers warmer temperatures during cold winter months.
We offer this cactus in a few different growth forms.
