Crested & Monstrose Cactus by Jude


Jude our 10 year old is responsible for these guys, he gets all the profit after costs!! 

These Ornamental guys come in their 3.5" plastic containers and will be labeled with their proper names unless specified in each listing.   ALWAYS wear gloves when handling!!! We will do our very best to give you all different types, if we can’t, there may be some multiples but we usually always have at least 5 different types in stock if not a few more.

**Please see our Exact individual larger specimens for sale under "Cactus"

Cristate forms, or crests, occur when the cells of the growing point of a plant begin to multiply erratically, elongating the growing tip to form "fans", rather than the usual single growing point. This can occur as a result of genetics, or from mechanical damage to the growing tip in the form of sudden cold, insect damage or other causes. When a plant is crested, it develops a form which often is far more attractive and interesting than the normal plant from which it has come.

Cristate (crested) plants require less light than the normal forms. Succulent crests should occasionally be trimmed of normal growth to perpetuate the cristate form. Cristate cacti should have "normals" removed carefully, and only during the active growing season.

**Soil can get displaced during shipping, simply pinch the soil back into their containers, straighten their position and give a gentle drink/rinse of water.**

Awesome cactus

Nicely mingled with my collection
Healthy and in good condition

Great !

even though the delivery was a bit delayed it was worth the wait I’m in love ! thank you so much

Still beautiful

I received a crested cactus, it looks pretty healthy and happy except for a large crack that goes just about completely through the whole thing. It doesn’t seem to be dying (rotting or the likes) but has possibly just cracked. Overall at this point I am satisfied. Time will tell if it’ll survive or not.

Love them

The cacti arrived, the box was beat up and they had no soil in the pots, but they survived and i am very happy with them. Great plants

Couldn't be Happier!!

I had a problem receiving my first order and when I e-mailed them at Succulent Source I received an immediately reply. They made everything very easy for me.
My plants were packed great and I couldn't be happier with them and the personal service. I will be ordering again very soon.
