There are different crested forms, some specimens form stable crests, others instead cluster on top of each other.

Plant care:

It likes an exposure to full sun in rather airy locations.

It prefers rather mild temperatures, however it still survives even at temperatures close to freezing if the soil is dry.

Water regularly on a weekly basis in spring-summer, always making sure that the soil is always dry between one watering and another one, avoiding stagnation of water. During the winter period, suspend watering.

A soil suitable for cacti is an optimal solution, even better if further mixed with pumice.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
