Two segment cutting. Approx. 12cm in total.

This mutant bridgesii produces small penis like segments that usually stop growth at 6-12cm to produce a new pup on top of it. The small pups have a furrow at the top, increasing the resemblance to a penis. New pups appear spiny and ribbed, as if reverted, however they soon take on the traits of older growth. This clone can only be propagated by cuttings due it’s inability to flower.

Syn: Echinopsis lageniformis monstrose (TBM); Cereus lageniformis monstrose

Note: Orders containing cuttings may not be shipped the Tuesday following payment received as per usual procedure. This is due to the cactus being cut to order and dry weather is required to ensure rot does not occur.

IMPORTANT: Your cutting needs to be calloused before it is ready for planting. Keep the cutting dry for a week or two until the cut end has formed a callus, you can use a little sulphur on the end to help with drying and to protect it from rot, but it isn't a necessity. Once calloused you can plant your cutting. The process works any time of year, but cactus cuttings potted in late summer to early autumn root the fastest. Fill an adequately sized pot with specialty cactus soil or mix your own from scratch with extra grit added, coarse sand, perlite, scoria, or pumice gives the soil the appropriate drainage and aeration. Plant the calloused cutting in the prepared potting mix and top dress to prevent soil loss. Once potted, keep dry, do not water! Most cactus cuttings root in four to six weeks.
