Myrtillocactus Geometrizans Cristata Blue
Myrtillocactus geometrizans in the blue cristata form, 35cm high from the pot rim, 7cm diameter from the non-branched stem; grown from the head cuttings; as a cactus for a (very) sunny location / avoid waterlogging; from my own succulent collection, not overfertilised therefore top healthy and robust (100% organic quality before quantity!); potted in self-mixed permeable organic substrate; repotting only desired in 3-4 years; rather slow growing; winter dormancy desired; a "statement" / collector plant as a "life companion"; PLEASE only if you have serious interest in the plant and the suitable location; a rarity! Enjoy your new Myrtillocactus geometrizans blue 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.
