Brachycereus nesioticus


Lava Cactus

Brachycerus nesioticus forms spiny columns that commonly colonize lava fields, hence the common name ‘Lava Cactus’. The needles of lava cactus are light brown and orange, giving it the fiery color. Columns do not grow up right but instead branch profusely; a single clump cactus can reach up to 2′ tall.
