  • IYKYK! This rare monstrose cultivar of the more common "blue candle" cactus (Myrtillocactus geometrizans) has unusually shaped tubercles making this cactus appear to have little boobs, hence the nickname, "boob cactus." Mostly spineless, with just 3 to 5 spines at each tubercle. This plant bears small purple edible fruits, although it is slow growing and tends not to bloom for many years until the plant is 24" or more. Mature plants can reach 8-10' tall after many years.

    Potted in a 6" container.

    Bright direct light
    Water when totally dry; about once a month or so depending on conditions
    Cactus soil mix
    Not toxic to cats and dogs
