Leuchtenbergia principis Family: Cactaceae. One of the strangest looking of all cacti! It has the longest tubercles of any cactus (rivaled only by Astrophytum caput-medusae)! They are the long arms that make up this plant. In a normal cactus they are just the small bumps that the spines are born on. The spines in this cactus are long and look fierce, but are actually quite thin and bendable. You don't have to worry about poking yourself on them. Takes normal cactus care. Protect from frost (it isn't as frost tolerant as the better known Ferocactus species).
You will receive a plant shown in the last image or one similar. 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.
