Looks Like a Friendly Ghost

Striking in appearance. With its 3.5" high columnar shape and a fuzzy stem topped with a crown of creamy flowers, this cactus looks like a friendly ghost. As the blossoms die, new flowers appear. But sometimes when I touch it, it ejects small spines into my finger tips, so it's hands off!

Small But Impactful

This particular cacti is delivered as a small specimen, but it’s beauty makes it worth the purchase.
