Monstrose Cactus Plants

These are pictures of my efforts at keeping a monstrose plant, of which species I could not identify. I bought the original a while ago (probably 1998), and had success growing one in aquaculture. Propagation is easy, just lop of one piece and plop it into a pot of soil.

However, there are too many nooks and crannies to this monstrose plant. If you are not careful, you will get white flies or scale insects or red spider mites. They are more difficult to clean, so I am phasing them out and sticking to plants without too many wooly spines or nooks and crannies.

The aftermath of an aquaculture experiment, June 1999. I grew a cutting in aquaculture. In a few months it has grown into a large specimen. Since it has become rather large, I decided to chop it up. I cut three large chunks (shown above) from the parent plant. As you can see, with some care, the cuttings look very clean and healthy.
