Monstrose Cactus
Cereus peruvianus monstrose

Albert may be no Einstein, but he’s definitely a smart pick. He has unique, deeply ribbed stems and will make you feel like you live in your very own desert oasis. If you're lucky, he'll even reward you with flowers and fruits similar to dragon fruit. Available in 1-foot, 2-foot, and 3-foot sizes.

Bright indirect or direct light.

Pro-tip: Place in front of a window for best results, preferably with southern or western exposure.

Please note that this cactus cutting is sold bare-root. Want to pot it? Shop the DIY Cactus Kit, which includes Albert (1-foot or 2-foot), one terracotta planter, organic potting mix, and lava rocks. Not sure how to pot? Check out our cactus potting guide here.

Open your cactus package with caution (and gloves). Don't get pricked!

This plant ships for a flat rate of $10. Please note, each arm of a Monstrose cutting counts towards its total length.

  • Pretty chill
  • Direct sun
  • Toxic to pets
  • Once a month

I love this unique cactus.

He’s easy to care for, and I feel good whenever I look at this unique addition to my home.

We let Prince Albert out of his box

Al is much larger than I expected… Very healthy, living in his new old pot

Cereus Peruvianus Montrose

Albert arrived safely and healthy. He was well packaged and had more arms then expected. That’s a good thing!

Love, love, love!

Shipped quickly. Arrived beautifully packaged and I can’t wait until it starts to root and grow into the planter I purchased. I bought the 3ft size and I’m going to purchase the 3ft Peruvian Apple Cactus next to add to my growing collection. Love you guys! Keep up the great work.
