Cereus peruvianus 'Apple Cactus' monstrose is a grey-blue cactus with a twisting, irregular undulating pattern on the stem ribs. This slow-growing cactus even produces fruit similar to dragon fruit when mature.

This 'Monstrose' cactus is very drought tolerant but should still be watered thoroughly when soil is completely dry. Be sure to keep this plant in porous soil with adequate drainage and give it plenty of full to partial sun. 

Cereus peruvianus monstrose blooms in summer months with large, whitish-pink flowers.

All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY. Read our full policy here.

Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
