Monstrosa

Freaky Cacti offers a massive selection of cacti seeds and plants, including several popular cristata and monstrosa (monstrose) mutant forms! Mutations like these occur variously due to bacterial or viral disease or mechanical injury. Variegation is another mutation which you may have heard of that can produce some amazingly attractive freak cacti. These mutations can also happen in many non-succulent plants, although seemingly much more rarely.

Monstrose growth occurs when a plant’s growth tips all attempt to grow as if they were the dominant one, resulting in the uniquely bulbous and lumpy plants popular with cactus collectors everywhere. Great examples of this are the two or three Trichocereus bridgesii monstrose forms available on the commercial market.
