Honestly, with a name like that you have to have this plant! We think the name comes from it's irregular growth and the fact that it's constantly growing new heads.
What characterizes Cereus Peruvianus Monstrosus from other cacti is its irregularly broken crests and knobs. These are hardy and slow growing cacti that can reach almost 15 feet in base diameter.
Care and Maintenance
This plant is very drought tolerant. They do need some water, during the summer, but do not leave the soil wet for prolonged periods.

This plant is safe for pets, but keep it out of their reach because of the prickles.
