Chala! — foot long basal pup
Nothing like the distinctive knobby-notch look of Chalaensis. Big 12” basal pup to be cut upon purchase.
NEW NOTE ON PURCHASING: After adding to cart, please read the simple instructions at check out, which say —> before clicking final purchase (which removes it from inventory), please pay via Venmo (or Zelle) first! From now on, when I get a Shopify “sold” notification without getting a Venmo transaction notification right before (or almost immediately after) then I am canceling the order and putting your plant back in the shop for someone else to get. Thanks for your cooperation and understanding! 🙏
To be cut upon purchase. For all post purchase cuttings, allow 1 week before shipment, as the exposed cut area needs time to start callousing. I apply sulphur powder to speed the process. 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* (and non-fungal, non-infection) stress reaction to being cut.
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.
