Opuntia Cylindrica Cristata is also known as Emerald Idol. 


This is a cristate cactus form, producing "fanned" growth of green with white areoles and small spines.


Cristate forms usually occur when injury happens to the plant at a young age or due to a genetic defect. Although unusual, these plants are really gaining in popularity and remind us of sea coral. Opuntia species are the most cold-tolerant of the lowland cacti.


This plant requires a free-draining soil mix. Water thoroughly when the soil is dry. 


The current pot size is 6.5cm.
