Tephrocactus articulatus Cactus in 1 gallon container "Paper Spines"



Very interesting and Fragile Tephrocactus articulatus Cactus AKA "Paper Spines" in 1 Trade gallon container.

Lots of little pups on these guys, when they fall off, and they WILL fall off during shipping and in Life, just allow a few days for the ends to dry and then repot and start another plant!!

Healthy and rooted in plastic container, ready to keep on growing, needs a nice new decorative container to show off in!!!

Update:12-31-2018  A customer ordered one of these for a gift and they were local in California.  We shipped a very full and overgrown specimen and did not trim/bump any of the pieces off prior to shipping, and it arrived with 17 pieces loose and ready for repotting.  These guys are fragile in nature and in a greenhouse, a simple bump or simple top heavy growth and they will fall off, and they will re root!  We absolutely cannot guarantee you will not have a bunch of healthy cactus waiting for new homes when you open your box, again as it says up top "Lots of little pups on these guys, when they fall off, and they WILL fall off during shipping and in Life, just allow a few days for the ends to dry and then repot and start another plant!!"  Please see picture of their cactus and some of it's 17 new pieces ready for new homes.  Thanks!

More pups than I knew what to do with!

Very very impressed with the specimen you sent me, plus the container had at least twenty little pups floating around in it that’ll all hopefully root up in time!

Everything Expected and More

I ordered one plant, which arrived packaged very well. The entire plant, including the pot, was wrapped twice in thick layers of packing paper. The box was then filled with packing peanuts. As expected, the offshoots had all come loose during shipping, but I was completely surprised by the sheer number of them. I'd already purchased pots in the expectation of potting them, but imagine my surprise when I realized there were 18 new plants, and the mother plant was still very large. I couldn't be happier. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the offshoots root! Oh. Beware... it may be called "paper spines", but there are teeny tiny thorns you can't see but will certainly feel once you've been stuck. :)
