DESCRIPTION

Embodying the whimsy and charm of its nickname, Myrtillocactus geometrizans 'Boobie Cactus' is an intriguing succulent native to Mexico. Known for its distinctive, globular protrusions that inspire its colloquial name, this cactus adds an element of surprise and delight to any collection. The 'Boobie Cactus' grows vertically, forming a bluish-green column that can reach up to 15 feet in height in its natural habitat, though it remains more modest in size when cultivated in pots or gardens. Its smooth, waxy surface is punctuated by areoles from which spines and flowers emerge.

During the spring, the cactus surprises with small, white or pink flowers that bloom at the top of its columns, adding a subtle splash of color to its otherwise monochromatic appearance. As it matures, the cactus may produce edible fruits that resemble small berries, adding to its ornamental value. Ideal for those looking to add a sculptural element to their indoor or outdoor succulent garden, Myrtillocactus geometrizans 'Boobie Cactus' thrives in full sun to partial shade and requires minimal water, making it a low-maintenance choice for enthusiasts and beginners alike.

Whether showcased in a container, where its unique form can be fully appreciated, or planted in a dry, rock garden where it can reach its full, towering potential, the 'Boobie Cactus' is sure to spark conversations and bring a sense of playfulness to any space. Its ease of care, coupled with its unusual appearance, makes it a must-have for collectors seeking to add diversity and character to their succulent displays.

PLANT SIZING & APPEARANCE

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!
