Curiosity Cactus

Image 1 Image 2 Image 3

Also know as the Cereus peruvianus var. monstrosus cactus. The curiosity cactus is the mutant form of the Peruvian apple cactus.

This multi-column, mutant variation has a crinkly blue growth habit and big white night blooming flowers. It can grow well over 10 feet tall with multiple stems when planted in the ground, and is great for landscapes as well as containers.

Ornamental Uses:

Landscape Planting: The Monstrose Apple Cactus is cultivated for its ornamental value and is often used in landscaping to create a focal point or as part of a cactus and succulent garden.

Container Gardening: Due to its unique and contorted growth habit, it is well-suited for container gardening. Containers allow for versatility in placement on patios, decks, or balconies. Can be used as an indoor plant in a bright room.

Xeriscaping: Cereus peruvianus var. monstrosus is suitable for xeriscaping and water-wise landscapes, as it is adapted to arid conditions.

Sculptural Element: The irregular and twisted stems add a sculptural and artistic element to gardens, outdoor and indoor spaces.

Flowering:

Like the standard Cereus peruvianus, the Curiosity cactus produces large, showy, nocturnal flowers. The flowers are typically white and may be fragrant.

Why purchase our Columnar Cacti?

Our columnar cacti are grown in their native habitat right here in Southern Arizona. Raised outdoors with just the right amount of water and fertilizer, they come to you in their natural form. These plants do not come to you from a greenhouse. They are already hardy to whatever growing conditions you have to offer. Our columnar cacti present the same appearance as you will find them in their native habitats.

If you want to plant them in a container for a sunroom, patio or window planter, great! If you want to take your columnar cacti and plant them in the ground, also great! No acclimation needed. Our plants are ready to go!

Great cactus

I bought one of these at a store in 1988. It was about 4 inches at the time. It's now well over 5 feet tall. Has lived in the same South window all those years. Goes out on the South deck when no more frost or cold. Flowers are lunch plate size white-ish pink and flat, many petals, Not much water at all. Seems to live on neglect. I love it!!

I am beyond grateful for the wonderful specimen they sent me. It was packaged nicely and came in pretty much pristine condition. I was so shocked when I opened the box and my expectations were absolutely blown away. I’m so happy with this purchase!
