Cereus Peruvianus Cactus
Monstrous cacti showing special twisting traits (Cereus Forbesii cv. Spiralis) , and an undulating pattern with a gorgeous blue patina.
These cacti bloom in the summer with very large, white to pinkish-white flowers that open in the evening and remain open into the next day. They are pollinated by hummingbirds, bats or insects. The fruit which follows is delicious, similar to dragon fruit in structure and flavor and contains small edible seeds called pitaya.
*September 21, 2022 – This specimen cactus is in the process of flowing (see pictures ) and has already produced over half 10 flower buds which should flower towards the end of this month. It will be quite the spectacle.
