Cereus Monstrose is a branching, tree-like cactus with monstrously twisted growth patterns brought on by a spontaneous mutation. It has lovely white flowers that only bloom at night and serve as a source of nectar for moths and bats.
Cereus Monstrose, also known as Cereus peruvianus 'Monstrosus' is native to South America. This cactus is a popular choice for those interested in adding an unusual and eye-catching element to their indoor or outdoor garden. It is also grown extensively as an ornamental plant all over the world. The height and spread of an apple cactus can range from 15 to 20 feet (4.57-6.07m). Cereus Monstrose comes in a number of variations, but the Monstrous variety is the biggest. Each appendage grows in a columnar pattern, eventually reaching a diameter of around 6 inches, its main identification feature.
