It is a cactus of a very particular shape, characterized by the monstrosities untypical for the normal form, which make each specimen exclusive, therefore highly sought after by green collectors. It has irregular ribs, on which very downy areoles of a white color are formed, that are completely devoid of spines. The Echinopsis aurea subs. shaferi f. monster is a slow growing cactacea, so it is often found grafted on the market. It is ideal for decorating any type of environment.
