This is a skinny version of Lophocereus schottii monstrose. It 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 meters (but can grow up to 7m high) and are 10 to 12cm in diameter. This monstrose 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.
