Leuchtenbergia Principis Cactus
Leuchtenbergia consists of a single species, Principis, that is quite distinct in shape from every other cactus species. It has extremely elongated triangular tubercles which reach up to 5 inches (14cm) in length in a rosette shape. At the end is an areole with long, papery, flexible spines. Flowers come from the center of the plant and are bright yellow. It is native to the Chihuahuan desert of Mexico.
Your plant will ship in a plastic growers pot. Our cactus and succulent plants are all grown in the same conditions and, although not identical, are similar in size and shape to the one pictured. We only ship high quality, healthy plants, personally inspected prior to packing. The majority of our plants will ship potted in the grower’s pot except our large plants that are field grown, unusually shaped or very delicate plants.
It’s important to remember that plants are living things and they are not perfect, nor is any living thing, minor imperfections or weathering are normal.
We include plant care instructions with your shipment and they can also be found on our website.
