  • Opuntia cylindrica cristata is a unique and ornamental cactus that belongs to the Opuntia genus within the Cactaceae family. The term "cristata" or "crested" refers to the fascinating growth pattern characterized by a densely packed and undulating form.
    The cristate form of Opuntia cylindrica is a result of a mutation that causes the cactus to grow in a fan-like or brain-like pattern. Instead of the typical cylindrical pads, the stems exhibit a broad and flattened appearance with multiple folds and crests.
    The stems are typically cylindrical, and in the crested form, they form wavy, contorted patterns. The crests can vary widely in appearance, with some resembling waves and others displaying more intricate folds.
  • Water Needs: Low; allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Water sparingly, especially during the dormant winter months.
  • Light Requirement: Prefers full, direct sunlight. Provide ample sunlight for optimal growth.
  • Maintenance: Low; minimal pruning required, mainly to shape the plant or remove dead or damaged growth.
  • Common Names: Crested Eve's Needle Cactus, Crested Cane Cholla.
  • Family: Cactaceae.
  • Origin: Native to Mexico and the southwestern United States.
  • Cold Tolerance: Cold-hardy; can tolerate cooler temperatures but protect from frost.
  • Heat Tolerance: Tolerates heat well and thrives in warm to hot conditions.
