We remove some of the soil when we ship. There are usually no issues with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. When you receive your plants, put them into a pot with moist soil. Give the roots opportunity to reachdown for water. Please check to see if your plants should be watered at the time of year you purchase. Some don't get a lot of water in winter and some not a lot of water in summer. How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater. Water well and allow your plants to dry out. The photos on our website represent what plants look like when growing. We are not selling the plant in the photo. Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at a different pace and different sizes so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

SALE plants may require additional freight payment

Myrtillocactus geometrizans crested
If you would like to order a specimen size Plant
@ $225, please drop me a note
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. The plant you are looking at is about 20" round.
