3.5" Crested Monstrose Cactus

Continue Shopping or Checkout

These guys come in their 3.5" plastic containers and will be labeled with their proper names! This collection does include Euphorbias, which can irritate your eyes and skin when the white milky sap comes out of their nicks and cuts. 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.

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.**

Beats expectations

This is bigger than I expected and very healthy. My order came quite fast and yes, it was a bit of a mess, but really no big deal. Very satisfied with my brain!

We are so glad you are satisfied with your brain.... crested montrose cactus!!! Thank you for your order. Sometimes the orders aren't handled with the care we ask for during shipping but a quick rinse of water does wonders. ENJOY!!!

Okay - Cactus and Succulents

I ordered 10 crested cactus. They were all healthy. But, the two Eve's Needle dropped almost all of its needles by the time I got it. I was a little disappointed, but it was okay.

I also ordered 10 assorted succulents in 4" pots. Half of them were healthy, the other half not so much. I got an echeveria that had browning on the leaves and some had been cut in half during shipping. My string of buttons was a mess. My elephant bush had dropped half of its leaves. Etc. Very disappointed with the succulents. Probably won't order again.

I ordered 20 assorted cactus in 2.5 inch pots. Some of them were completely out of their pots by the time I got them. They were all dirty and my poor bunny ears barely made it. I made sure they got good soil and water as soon as I saw their state.

Because of how the packaging was handled, my plants were a little underwhelming. Poor packaging = poor quality. From now on, I'm just going to order bigger cactus and skip the little ones.

We're very sorry your order did not meet your satisfaction, we have a simple policy of just asking that you contact us right after arrival of any damaged plants and to send us a picture of them so we can quickly assess and address appropiately. We have no record of any emails or calls, unfortunately we cannot fix anything if we're not notified.
