Myrtillocactus geometrizans cristatus

Cultivation and Propagation: The crests are frequently grafted onto a normal a Myrtillocactus trunk but are easily grown on their own roots. Any normal shoots should be removed to promote the growth of the crest. This cactus tolerates exposure to full sun and generally welcomes moderate watering. They are semi hardy. Make sure that your Myrtillocacti are not exposed to temperatures below -0°C, or they may die. Nevertheless it is good advice never let the night-time temperature fall below 10°C. Water regularly in summer, but allow to dry fully before watering again. It needs a well-drained soil mix, with small gravel added to ensure drainage. During the winter months plants should be rather kept dry, and water is restricted to only enough to keep the stems and branches from shriveling. Since they are big-sized plants need plenty of space for their roots, repotting should be done every other year, or when the plant has outgrown its pot.

Exposure: Light shade when young, full sun later.
Propagation: Cuttings in summer (Cuttings will root only in hot weather. Cuttings must be kept very dry to root).

Planet Desert Myrtillocactus geometrizans crest Review

Planet Desert

We did communicate this with you that corking is a natural process that cacti experience with aging, no cutting that could of caused scarring is done on these. We felt this was resolved as we did not hear back from you. If you are still unhappy with this plant please email us and we can review options of resolution. Thank you!
