This is a fast-growing plant, and please be cautious when cutting as the sap is toxic and can irritate the skin; it's not pet friendly only if ingested.

  • Nursery Pot - Standard plastic 4-inch or 6-inch planter pot that can be placed inside a larger pot or left as is until it outgrows it.
  • Valentina Terracotta Pot 6" - a beautiful molded terracotta pot that is porous and fire-glazed to allow plant roots to breathe; color works well with any decor and will develop a beautiful patina color over time. Includes matching dish underneath to catch water drainage and protect surfaces.

Was infested with scale

The plant was infested with scale , iI received as a gift and left my friend know so they could email them with photos, and he received an email with blatant lies that they inspected the plant and it was perfect when they mailed it, and it just has spots because of too much sun. I had to scrape the scale off for 1 hour. It sucks that customer service was like that, because they have other plants I was interested in buying from them. But I am not interested in infested plants , which no doubt is a problem with other plants in their catalog, and a business that doesn’t send the best to their customers, that then lies about their product to customers.


The cactus arrived packed very well and with a free heat pack. However the plant was drenched in water prior to shipment which caused the plant to sadly stay way too wet and cause rot.
