2.5" Grafted Moon Cactus

Regular price $12.99

It’s hard to mistake a Grafted Cactus when you see one. You’d quickly notice a cute and brightly-colored sicon (usually a Moon Cactus) sitting atop another type of cactus, like Hylocereus, that acts as the rootstock. Because a Grafted Cactus is a fusion of two different cacti, its appearance, size, and color usually vary. Its upper part can be yellow, orange, purple, or red, depending on the variety of sicon used. Older plants sometimes bloom with pink flowers.
