Stenocactus crispatus
Stenocactus crispatus
Stenocacti (often labelled as Echinofossulocacti) are grown mostly for their unusual and attractive bodies. Their distinguishing feature is the large number of pronounced, wavy ribs. The flowers of these Mexican plants may be pink, purple or yellow, sometimes with a distinct stripe on the petals. Cultivation seems to present few if any problems.
