This cool cactus embodies the serene arid landscapes and setting suns of South America and Africa. Succulent green, triangular trunks reach for the sky, casting scalloped shadows in the sunlight. A huddle of secondary branches cling to the waist of the main stem, displaying a geometric margin which form rippled furrows along the cactus' surface. This easy-care succulent will tolerate most environments, making it perfect for beginners.
