forma mostruosa minor "mieckleyanus"

Lophocereus schottii var. monstrosus 'forma mieckleyanus' is a slow-growing usually trunkless cactus that forms numerous tall, ascending, columnar stems which branch at the base in a candelabra-like arrangement. Stems have a waxy bloom on the surface and reach a height of 3-4 metres (but can grow up to 7m high) and are 10 to 12cm in diameter. This mostruos mutation has variable, irregularly shaped ribs whit sparse areoles.This species presents no problems in cultivation and will do well in a sunny spot in a cactus house. These plants will tolerate extreme sun and heat, but not extended periods of frost. They can survive to a minimum temperature of -4, but the growing tips need protection. The monstrose form is more frost sensitive and should not be kept at less than -0°C . They will tolerate severe drought if they have a large colony of stems.

Worth the wait!

He been looking for a totem pole cactus for awhile. Saw them on the planet desert website and they were out of stock so I filled in to be notified when they came in. Got notified and ordered it the same day. It was bigger than expected and I love it! Great shape and great looking.

Order came promptly. Thank you. However, I notice that the plant is not showing any growth at all. It is basically looks like when it came in. I’ll give it another week. If it shows no sign of life, I would like to return it. Thanks for the follow-up. -Maria

Got this lovely Totem Pole cactus today. I can't believe how well they ship plants, but I couldn't recommend planet desert any higher for fans of desert plants.
