Product Description

Loxanthocereus aureispinus CRESTED, also known as the Crested Golden-Spine Cactus, is a unique and visually striking crested form of the Loxanthocereus aureispinus cactus. Crested cacti are mutations that result in abnormal, flattened, or fan-shaped growth patterns, deviating from the typical cylindrical or spherical shape of most cacti. Here's a brief description of Loxanthocereus aureispinus CRESTED:

Appearance: Loxanthocereus aureispinus CRESTED is characterized by its distinctive crested growth habit. Instead of the usual upright or columnar form, this cactus exhibits a fan-like or undulating appearance, with multiple fan-shaped stems or clusters arising from a single point. The flattened and contorted growth gives it a unique and appealing visual appeal.

Spination: One of the remarkable features of this crested cactus is its spines. The stems are covered with numerous golden or yellow spines that can vary in length and density. These spines add to the cactus's overall charm, contrasting with the green or bluish-green coloration of the stems.

Flowers: Loxanthocereus aureispinus CRESTED, like the non-crested form, produces small, trumpet-shaped flowers that typically appear in shades of white or cream. The flowers can add to the cactus's visual appeal during the blooming season.

Cultural Requirements: Caring for Loxanthocereus aureispinus CRESTED involves providing it with well-draining soil, bright sunlight, and minimal water. Like most cacti, it prefers to dry out between waterings and is well-suited for arid and desert-themed gardens, rock gardens, or container planting.

Landscape Use: This crested cactus is prized for its unique and sculptural growth habit, making it an attractive choice for succulent collections, xeriscaping projects, or as a focal point in garden designs. Its captivating appearance and unusual growth form make it a standout addition to both indoor and outdoor settings.

Loxanthocereus aureispinus CRESTED is admired by succulent enthusiasts and collectors for its captivating crested growth and golden spination. Its distinct appearance adds a touch of intrigue and uniqueness to succulent collections and garden landscapes, showcasing the diversity of cacti within the Loxanthocereus genus.
