Tephrocactus articulatus v. papyracanthus An unusual purplish gray cactus with egg or sausage shaped stems. New stems are jointed and give a unique look to the plant. This is a close relative of Tephrocactus geometricus and differs mainly in having elongated stems instead of round ones. This is the large spine form of the species. These spines are particularly sharp as they are thin and broad. Easy to grow. Give good light and protect from frost. Joints break off very easily so avoid bumping the plant, but if one breaks off just stick it in the soil and it will root.
You will receive a plant shown in the last image. Plant shown in a 3.5" 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.
