Medusa Cactus


Ben brought in his gorgeous specimen Astrophytum caput-medusae, although he prefers to go by the name Digitostigma caput-medusae, which is considered a non-recognized name by the science boards that decide these things.

Ben says we may have some available to sell at the Cactus Jungle in a year or two. Nice! Thanks, Ben.

The horns are the cactus’ tubercles, i.e. what in most cactus are little bumps on or along the stems, here have gone wild and formed these giant spotted horns.

And the flower is cresting! Another closeup of the flower after the jump…
