Tephrocactus geometricus is a slow growing rare globular segmented cactus. It is known for its geometric shape and lovely blue-green color that can turn a purple-red with sun stress. This cactus can flower, but flowers only last about a day. Corking and scarring is normal on these plants and is not necessarily an indicator of health issues. Last 2 photos show an example of a mature flowering plant.
Love my new little friend, I've been wanting one of these guys for a while. Shipping was quick, plant arrived healthy. (I also got a sticker!!) Already placed another order with EAS!
Thank you East Austin Succulents for my wonderful cactus. This plants was shipped to where the cluster was safe and would not break apart. If you are a Tephrocactus fan and worried about clusters breaking apart don’t worry. Keep up they great work East Austin Succulents online Team.
I received this wonderful little cactus in great shape. The packaging was bomb proof and fast, the roots were trimmed and the plant was intact. Most people are afraid to purchase these Tephrocactus Geometricus when doubles because they can break. East Austin Succulents made sure that did. not happen with careful paper towel wrapping. Thanks again online team.
