Just like fruit & veg, plants come in all shapes and sizes. Some might not come top of a beauty contest, but they'll still put a smile on your face for years to come. Our Perfectly Imperfect Plants are exactly that. They might be a strange shape or have the odd mark, but they're still beautiful. No matter which way these plants grow, or the marks they show, they're still as healthy as every other plant we sell.
What are my imperfections?
- I was damaged in transit
- I'm missing a small bit of 'flesh' near the top
- I might have the odd patch of dryness too
- As I'm not 'perfect', I can't be returned, and I'm not covered by a guarantee
Moriarty, a Echinocereus Morricalii Cactus, is a slow-growing cactus native to Mexico.
As he grows in the wild, it forms a small cluster of columnar stems that shrink in winter in response to a the lack of water.
Believe it or not, when he's happy, he might even show bright pink-purple flowers with bright yellow centres.
Perfectly Imperfect, Echinocereus Morricalii Cactus
Moriarty prefers bright light and once established will even tolerate direct sun.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
