Emerald Idol Cactus


Behold the Emerald Idol Cactus! The Emerald Idol (Opuntia Clindrica Cristala) is spectacular and gnarly, but don't be intimidated. This rare cactus hasn't said a word since we brought it to our studio. Emerald Idol comes from around Ecuador and Peru and this is a rare crested form, which means the mutated cactus develops in a fan shape. The rich dark green cactus has a twisted body, resembling coral, with little white “areoles” and tiny spines at the top. It can grow up to a foot tall in the wild, but will stay 5-6 inches in this little pot for a few more years.

The Emerald Idol is very hearty and loves bright, but indirect sun. It also likes porous cactus soil that drains quickly and ample airflow. As with most cacti, it likes to be completely soaked with water only when the soil is completely dry – don't water often with small amounts of water.

The Emerald Idol kit comes with a 4 inch cube pot in matte black or matte white, 1 lb of Juicykits cactus mix, 1/2 lb of jet black lava rock, and a cute little note card. Supplies are limited, so don't wait to order.
