|This is one of many crested clones of Myrtillocactus geometrizans. They fan out while some will form stable crests while others (the more common) just cluster over one another. Regardless, both types make for a spectacular landscape attraction. In the summer, delicate looking cream colour flowers appear, decorating the cacti’s entire body, succeeded by a tiny very sweet, edible, plum-like fruit. We do not suggest eating this plant. Remove normal growth to keep the plant crestng. Water regularly in summer, but allow to dry fully before watering again. It needs a well-drained soil mix, with small gravel added to ensure drainage. During the winter months plants should be rather kept dry, and water is restricted to only enough to keep the stems and branches from shrivelling. Since they are big-sized plants need plenty of space for their roots, repotting should be done every other year, or when the plant has outgrown its pot. Exposure: Light shade when young, full sun later.|
