👑 Bertha x Scop, big 10” tip
Bridgesii “Bertha” x Scopulicola. I can attest that this one packs a punch 👊. Girthy 10” tip.
The “ 👑 “ means Kingstock, to be cut upon purchase. Any Kingstock that doesn’t sell (due to higher price) does 2 good things - 1) it keeps the shop populated with content when other inventory runs out, and 2) it keeps on growing in my garden
To be cut upon purchase. For all post purchase cuttings, allow a minimum of 1 week before shipment, as the exposed cut area needs time to start callousing. It’s not that uncommon (20-ish% of the time) for small black oozy “stress blisters” to form after cutting. This might be oogly, but it’s also a *normal* stress reaction to being cut. These black spots (if they appear) are not fungal/virus/rot/infection, and will soon stabilize and callous before rooting. I do not issue refunds due to stress blistering, your cutting is fine! Don’t be such a weenie hut junior, geez 🙄
The cactus you see here is the same cactus you get. We only sell healthy cactus, but there’s always a chance of minor blemishes, marks, black stress blisters, scars and imperfections. All plants are hard grown rough-n-tumble without pesticides.
This plant requires protection from freezing weather, but will tolerate high 20s on rare occasion with frost covering. The Cactus Jones ships from a warm climate zone (no freezing), but please be aware of the weather in your area — will not refund for temperature related damage, whether frozen or cooked.
