Its trunk is thick. Candelabrum stems have 5 ridges each and are 3,5-7,5 centimeters thick. Segmented sprouts are dark-green. Young sprouts have paired spines 0,5-2 millimeters long, often reflected. Small greenish yellow flowers sit on the ridges of the topmost segment. The plant blooms from autumn to winter. A red round 3-lobed capsule fruit turns purple when ripened.
The plant's flowers are attractive for butterflies, bees and other insects, which pollinate them when gathering pollen and nectar.
