Stenocactus crispatus is native to broad swathes of Mexico's Chihuahuan Desert, specifically the Northern and Central areas of Hidalgo, Querétaro, Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Oaxaca, Guanajuato, Tlaxcala, and Puebla. Colloquially known as the "Brain Cactus" due to its unique undulating ribs, Stenocactus crispatus can be found primarily in xerophilous pastizal ecosystems as well as open piñon-juniper woodlands. Stenocactus crispatus is a solitary plant, meaning it rarely branches, and is covered in wavy ribs protected by long flattened spines. Regarded as an ideal specimen for home cultivation, it produces small yet vividly attractive magenta and pale pink flowers when in bloom.
Our botanists strive to source and produce high-quality specimens to enrich your mind as well as your ears. After many months in the field our team has returned with a diverse selection of sonic seedlings. Following a series of meticulous experiments in our research facility each seedling has been deemed safe for general propagation and cleared for release.
