Cereus Forbesii cv. Spiralis - Spiral Cactus
Seriously stunning and each is of specimen quality!
Two sizes available at approx. 11” and 13” and rooted.
This plant is also known as Cereus Peruvianus 'Spiralis' or simply spiral cactus. This interesting twisted cactus is fairly easy to cultivate.
Good news, it grows quickly and has a striking elongated stem with spectacular blooms. These plants are thought to come from a clone derived from vegetative propagation of the plant originally discovered in Peru.
This is a trunkless cactus that forms numerous tall, columnar, blue-green, spiral stems branching at the base in a candelabra-like arrangement. Stems have a waxy blossom on the surface, reach a height of 6-13 feet and are 4-5 inches in diameter. The stems have five to nine widely spaced ribs. This is also a prolific bloomer with stunning pink to white hued blossoms that bear purple fruit when pollinated.
This is a must plant for any collector!!
The plant is featured in a 6 inch pot and you will receive a similar plant shipped semi-bare root.
