Looking for a cool, funky, alien vibe? How about a Spiralled Cereus cactus. The blue-green colour and spiralling, columnar form is out of this world and very easy to look after.

Younger plants begin life with straight ribs that twist at about 10cm. The ribs are covered in spines which can be variable in length. Flowers are pink or white, with long delicate petals.

Also sometimes known as Cereus peruvianous tortulosus, with common names including Twisted Cereus and Contorted Cereus.
