👑 Bob’s Colossus — Fat 9” Tip

👑 Bob’s Colossus — Fat 9” Tip

Here’s a beauty — Bob Ressler’s Colossus, field note BBG # 66.0159 Ritter, Bolivia 2800 meters elevation.  Color, shape, everything about this one is gorgeous.  I’m convinced it’s genetically close to Huanucoensis. Older growth will have long single spines lower down, and be near spineless up top.  Chubby 9” tip to be cut upon purchase.


Why the “👑“?  This means Kingstock, extra primo, and is usually only applied to named clones (though on rare occasion, I apply it to a hybrid listing). If a Kingstock listing doesn’t sell (due to higher price) it will do 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 💪

Instruction for Cut-To-Order cuttings —> lay this on its side indoors in a dry place for a minimum of 2 additional weeks while the sulphur-coated callous fully hardens (do this before ever placing upright in dry medium).

The cactus you see here is the same cactus you get. I 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 

The Cactus Jones ships from a temperate climate zone (no freezing), but please be aware of the temps on your end — will not refund for temperature related damage, whether frozen or cooked.
