Family: Cactaceae (Cactus Family)

Scientific name:  Cylindropuntia fulgida forma cristata

Conservation status: Listed in CITES appendix 2.
 

 


Description: This crested cultivar is astonishing. It is derived from a large Mexican cactus but the cultivar is compact, small, and presents a silhouette made of heavily convoluted folds. The short living grey/green foliage is arranged only at the top of the stem. The spiny grey stem will soon form a fan-shaped or snaky ridged bush reminding of a boa asleep. Even if his form is rare, this cactus is however resistant and easy to grow in an acid draining soil, needs full sun.
