Cereus Forbesii Spiralis
Cereus Forbesii Spiralis - the "spiral Cereus" - is a shrubby or arboreal species that is doubtfully considered a mutant of Cereus forbesii. It is a (usually) stemless cactus that forms numerous tall, ascending, columnar stems. These can reach a height of 2 to 4 metres and have a diameter of 10 to 12 cm. Some branches of the original plant were imported to Europe around 1980 at a very high price. Nowadays, almost all available plants are seed-grown specimens resulting from cross-pollination with (presumably) Cereus peruvianus or Cereus stenogonus.
