This monstrose San Pedro cactus is a very rare cactus. Normally it would have straight ribs, so that you could cut cross sections what would look like stars. But monstrose cacti have a genetic mutation that causes uneven, sometimes totally unpredictable growth. This is a San Pedro Cactus var. Monstruosus. Crested and monstrose cacti are extremely popular among rare cactus collectors. Aside from the general rarity, crested cacti offer you much more variety. You can have many specimens of the same type of crested cactus, and they can all be different. These are especially valuable because they are growing on their own roots. These are nice size pieces, approx 6″ length. We also offer other crested and monstrose forms, including large crested San Pedro 6″ pieces.
