It is a very special and rare cactus, which is why it is highly appreciated by green collectors from all over the world. As it grows, it forms a fan or sometimes a couple of fans, tangled on each other. Its green stem is covered with a few short gray spines. With exposure to the direct sun, the arch of the crest takes on a purple color. It can reach up to 3 m in height, if grown in mild areas. Thanks to its sculptural shape, it is perfect for decorating interior spaces and making beautiful modern and design plant compositions.
