Leuchtenbergia principis f. monster

The monstrous shape of this cactus completely changes the nature of the normal plant: this form, grown in a nursery, in fact consists of a strongly aggregated body, with a central stem, to which small groups of tubercles are aggregated. Each "leaf" has the same greyish-green color and the same triangular cross-sectional shape, as the normal Leuchtenbergia, but reaches a maximum length shorter than the standard Leuchtenbergia has, a maximum of 5 cm, while maintaining a similar diameter. At the apex of each tubercle, flexible spines, maximum of a few centimeters long, branch off from greyish areoles, that are sometimes very downy.
