Cereus forbesii spiralis 'Spiral Cactus'

$ 35.00
Size: 4"

Embodying the intrigue and beauty of nature's design, Cereus forbesii spiralis 'Spiral Cactus' is an extraordinary succulent hailing from the forests of South America. Unlike its straight-stemmed cousins, this variety twists and turns as it grows, creating a mesmerizing spiral form that can reach up to several feet in height under the right conditions. Its green, ribbed surface is punctuated by areoles from which spines and flowers emerge, adding texture and interest to its already captivating structure.

This architectural plant makes a dramatic statement whether displayed on its own or within a collection of other succulents and cacti. During the night, the Spiral Cactus may surprise you with large, fragrant flowers that bloom under the cover of darkness, their white petals standing in stark contrast to the plant's deep green coloration. These nocturnal blooms not only add to the visual appeal of the plant but also attract nighttime pollinators, playing a crucial role in the ecosystem of your garden or home.

Though it may look exotic and difficult to care for, Cereus forbesii spiralis is remarkably resilient and low-maintenance, thriving in well-draining soil and requiring only occasional watering. It's well-suited to a bright spot where it can soak up plenty of sunlight, mimicking its natural habitat. With its unique spiraled growth habit and stunning nocturnal flowers, the Spiral Cactus is sure to be a conversation starter and a prized specimen in any plant collection.


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!
