Marginato Cereus Marginatus Crested Pipe Organ Plant Rare 18 cm
Marginato Cereus Crested hence the common name Pipe Organ. This is a genus, highly appreciated by green collectors all over the world, which consists of just one species - Marginatocereus marginatus.
These are columnar cacti, that rarely branch off, but rather tend to grow in groups, resembling a series of organ pipes.
In nature they tend to grow up to almost two meters high, with their deep green stems and with a rough texture, provided with well marked ribs, perfectly outlined by the areoles, arranged to form white continuous longitudinal lines.
Occasionally a spectacular natural phenomenon takes place, which transforms Marginatocereus into a wonderful crested fan, very easy to grow even in pots, perfect to embellish your house! With the appearance of a real sculpture, this fan shape is even more pronounced, thanks to the white vertical ribs, which contrast nicely with the dark green of the crest: a real must-have for all collectors, that can not be missed to make unique and special any environment!
