Cereus Forbesii Spiralis (Spiral Cactus)
While some Cereus Peruvianus will begin to spiral slightly on thier own, THIS IS THE TRUE SPIRALIS! (Cereus forbesii cv. Spiralis ). It is a (usually) trunkless cactus that forms numerous tall, ascending, columnar stems which branch at the base in a candelabra-like arrangement. Stems have a waxy bloom on the surface and reach a height of 2-4 metres (but can grow up to 5 m high or more), and are 10 to 12 cm in diameter. They have five to nine widely-spaced ribs.
It is a heavy bloomer and large purple fruits are easily produced when flowers are pollinated. It is self-sterile.
LIGHT: Med to Full sun
WATER: These plants are more sensative to over watering than typical Cereus Peruvianus. Keep on the dry side
NATIVE: South America

Bigger than I expected. Packed really well and with great instructions. Better than what I expected.
The packaging on these cacti was excellent and they arrived healthy. I worked with Ben who is incredibly kind, and having a seller like that makes all the difference. Before purchasing through Kesslers, I had looked at a few sellers on Etsy and I’m ultimately very glad I chose here. Will definitely return for future purchases!
My cactus arrived shortly after I placed my order, was larger than I expected, and was packaged with care given to not damage it- thank you so much!!
Great specimen and really quick delivery. It's in the pot now.
So pleased with my purchase. Cactus arrived quickly, nicely packed and in perfect condition. Highly recommend Kessler's Cacti & Things.
