The standard Myrtillocactus geometrizans is a highly branched columnar candelabra like tree cactus that creates a dense growth of stems growing closely together. In nature grows up to 4.5 m tall, with the crown reaching up to 5 m in width.
The crested form is a spectacular mutation that is highly sought after and very difficult to find in this very large size. Beautiful unsual cactus.
From spring onwards water cacti and succulents freely, allowing excess water to drain away. The soil should be allowed to dry out slightly between waterings. Full Sun.
