Introducing the stunning Austrocylindropuntia subulata Monstrose Gumby, which is a fascinating and visually striking monstrose cactus variety. It is a mutant form of the Austrocylindropuntia subulata (Eve's Needle cactus).  

This Monstrose cactus is known for its unique and contorted growth patterns, which resembles the flexible and bendable character from the popular clay animation series, Gumby. It's a fun and fitting name for this quirky cactus.

It has several other common names such as, Opuntia subulata monstrose gumbi, Austrocylindropuntia subulata gumby, Austrocylindropuntia subulata f. monstruosa, Austrocylindropuntia subulata monstruosa, Opuntia gumbi, and Austrocylindropuntia subulata f. monstrosa.  

Its Monstrose Gumby cactus stems are covered in sharp spines, adding to its intriguing and slightly intimidating charm. It has green cylindrical stems with yellow spines and spike-like leaves but does not grow as large and freely with sidearms. The contorted growth forms irregular shapes and patterns, making each plant truly unique. 

The flowers of the Austrocylindropuntia subulata Monstrose bloom in summer with vibrant yellow flowers. These flowers are relatively small but add a beautiful pop of color to the cactus. They attract pollinators, such as bees and butterflies, enhancing the overall appeal of the plant. 

Taking care of the Monstrose Gumby cactus is similar to caring for other cacti. It thrives in bright, indirect sunlight, so place it in a well-lit area. It is drought-tolerant and prefers infrequent watering. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings to prevent root rot and other damage. Use a well-draining cactus soil mix to ensure proper drainage. You can grow your Gumby cactus outdoors in USDA zones 9-11, and indoors between 60-75 degrees Fahrenheit. 

Propagating this gumby plant is relatively simple. You can propagate it through stem cuttings. Allow the cuttings to callus for a few days before planting them in well-draining soil. With proper care, the cuttings will develop roots and grow into new plants. While the Monstrose cactus has sharp spines that can cause injury, it is generally not considered toxic 

Overall, the Austrocylindropuntia subulata Monstrose Gumby is a captivating cactus variety known for its contorted growth patterns, vibrant yellow flowers, and low-maintenance monstrose cactus care requirements. Its unique appearance and easy propagation make it a popular choice among cactus enthusiasts. Just remember to handle it with care.
