Crested Cacti


Crested plants are those that exhibit distorted growth. This happens when a mutation occurs during cell division. The crested forms generally occur in the wild because of injuries to the plant at a young age. 

Cells at the tip of the branch where growth occurs begin to multiply at a much faster rate and the normal growing tip "goes crazy," creating, in the case of crested plants, those fantastical fans. 

A must for every Cactus collector.
