Ming Thing' exhibits naturally occurring mutant growth, in the form of sculptural club-like shapes of blue-green columnar cactus from Bolivia and Argentina. Woolly areoles and short black spines appear on top of these many bizarre stems. This plant can tolerate somewhat lower lighting than most cacti. It grows slowly up to 1 foot. Grow in soil appropriate for cacti in clay pots with several drainage holes. Place outside during the summer in partial shade to filtered shade and bring inside before frost. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings.
