Tephrocactus articulatus papyracanthus ~ Paper Spine Cactus

Write a review

A unique cactus with long, flattened pseudo-spines that resemble raffia. They also sport glochids (tiny hair-like spines), so don't think you can play around with this one!! It grows knobby, segmented stems that can branch and stack up quite tall over time. This variety can be reluctant to bloom, but the stem segments break off easily and are readily re-rooted. 

This plant is featured in a 4” pot and will be sent with pot because, quite frankly, I don't want to accidentally touch it. We will take great care in packaging your plant.  However, segments may still come loose in shipping, but can easily be rooted.
