Spectacular and sculptural tangle: it is the cylindrical Crested Opuntia!

The genus Opuntia includes those succulents that we all know as prickly pear. The crested Opuntia partly reproduces the conformation of the latter, but thanks to the undulating surface it appears as a much more ornamental fat plant. Its spines start from a base that creates a ribbing of almost woolly and yellowish consistency. The spectacularity of this Opuntia lies in its twisted and sculptural appearance, which growing will be highlighted even more. It is a succulent plant whose primary origin is Mexican, although it has spread then throughout North America, and will not fail to give astonishment to anyone who looks at it.
For the cultivation of this Opuntia it is good to follow some attentions: growing in high altitudes, it is good not to sacrifice it in places with hot and suffocating climate; on the contrary it is recommended to find a ventilated position and protected from direct sunlight.
The soil must be kept well drained, otherwise the waterings (which must be moderate in quantity but still regular, every time the soil is dry) are likely to rot the roots.
The Crested Opuntia can be fertilized with a cacti fertilizer during the growing season.
