Marginatocereus Marginatus Cristata
Marginatocereus marginatus in the "cristata" form, rarity! from my own succulent collection; as a cactus for a (very) sunny location; no waterlogging; not overfertilised, therefore top healthy and robust (quality before quantity!); planted in a self-mixed permeable organic substrate in a clay pot; repotting only desired in 2-3 years (rather slow growing); a "statement" / collector's plant as a "life companion"; much pleasure with your new Marginatocereus marginatus cristata!

Crests are exceptions; the crested plant is a healthy plant, but one that develops in an abnormal way. Cresting is therefore a spontaneous mutation, an abnormality of the vegetative apex which, instead of growing conical or cylindrical, flattens out and the plant takes on the appearance of a crest or fan with many curves, reminiscent of the shape of a brain. In fact, crests can be found in many different species of succulent plants. The crested succulents become true sculptures.
