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

This plant will be shipped BARE ROOT.  Please pot it up in a very well draining cactus soil mix or pick up a bag of our Custom Cactus Mix

    Excellent customer service and beautiful cacti

    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!
