$ 12.00
Size: 4"

Embodying the essence of its unique name, Tephrocactus articulatus var. inermis 'Pine Cone Cactus' is an intriguing succulent hailing from Argentina. This distinctive plant captivates with its chunky, segmented stems that closely resemble the appearance of pine cones, lending it an exotic and textural allure. The segments of this cactus are predominantly green, with a potential to display a bluish hue under certain light conditions, adding to its visual appeal. Standing at a modest height, this cactus can reach up to 6 inches, making it an ideal choice for those looking to add a touch of the unusual to their indoor garden or office space without requiring a lot of room.

Perfect for a minimalist or desert-themed arrangement, the 'Pine Cone Cactus' thrives in well-draining soil and enjoys plenty of sunlight, mimicking its natural arid environment. Despite its tough exterior, this cactus is relatively easy to care for, asking only for occasional watering and a spot where it can bask in the sun's glory. What's more, its lack of spines makes it a safer choice for households with curious pets or children, distinguishing it from more traditional, prickly cacti.

While it may not flower as readily as some of its succulent counterparts, when it does, it produces lovely, delicate white or yellow flowers that contrast beautifully against its rugged stems. These blossoms add an unexpected softness to its overall appearance, making the 'Pine Cone Cactus' a fascinating specimen that is sure to spark conversation and admiration in any setting it graces.


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!
