Scientific name: Lophocereus Schottii f. monstrose

This is an artistic representation of the monstrose variety of the senita cactus, also known as the totem cactus. It's a rare and special collector cactus that naturally occurs as a mutation of Lophocereus (Pachycereus) Schottii, only found in a tiny region of Baja California. It is near to completely spineless and has extremely sculptural, deeply lobed ribs with a waxy look. The senita cactus has a mutualistic relationship with the senita moth, which is the sole pollinator for its flowers (though the monstrose is unlikely to bloom).

We have a couple of sizes available, ranging from 8" tall plants potted into 6" terracotta, to 1'+ specimens to in 10" grow pots. Only available for in-store pickup—we do not ship any plants! We recommend you come by the store first to check out these special cacti in person.
