  • Myrtillocactus geometrizans cv. Fukurokuryuzinboku is an unusual looking cactus where the ribs are shaped liked a woman's breasts. It has acquired the related anatomical names such as 'Booby Cactus', 'Titty Cactus' and 'Breast Cactus'.

    It is a rare monstrose form of a Japanese cultivar of Myrtillocactus geometrizans aka the 'Blue Candle Cactus' or 'Blue Myrtle Cactus'.

    Aside from its obvious appearance, it shares many other features with the 'Blue Candle' cactus. It is a large columnar cactus, then branching out at the top in a tree-like manner and growing to 4m tall over time. Small (2-3cm) greenish flowers bloom in spring, once the plant is mature.

    Plant in a bright, warm, position in a very well draining substrate. Water only when dry and very sparingly in winter. It does not like very cold temperatures and is not frost tolerant.
