Coleocephalocereus aureus Family: Cactaceae. Also known as Buiningia brevicylindrica. An unusual cactus species that when young looks like your average green cactus, but when it matures it does something very unusual. It creates a cephalium, which is a specialized flowering structure that is full of short golden spines and many flowers that runs along one side of the cactus. This is a permanent addition to the plant and it turns the plant into a real conversation piece! Takes normal cactus care. Protect from frost.
You will receive a plant shown in the 4th image or one similar. Last image shows a mature plant. Plants shown in a 4" pot.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
