This is a Trichocereus bridgesii monstrose also known as the "Penis Plant". A monstrose is a mutated form of a plant that occurs in nature.
These are photos of the exact plant you will receive. These plants will often develop brown spots, especially at the base, over time. This plant is old and has its share of spots. You can see the new growth is nice and clean.
This Trichocereus is in a 6" plastic pot. All of our plants are shipped bare root (carefully wrapped with no soil and no pot). The pot and the soil are not included. We have a care sheet to give you tips on caring for succulents and cacti - contact me for a copy.
THESE ARE PHOTOS OF THE EXACT PLANT YOU WILL RECEIVE.
When you re-pot it do not use a pot much larger than the one it is in. If you put a succulent in a pot that is too large, the soil will take too long to dry since there are not enough roots to absorb the water and your plant may get root rot.

What is the difference between an cactus and a succulent? All cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti. Succulents are plants that store water in their stem, leaves or root system. A true cactus has a structure called an areole. It looks like a patch of cotton from which spines, flowers, branches and roots grow. While some succulents may have spines, they will not have areoles.

I originally ordered a Bridgesii Monstrose from another seller on Etsy who ships from within my own state, thinking that the shipping would be fastest. After a week of no news on when my package would ship from that seller, I cancelled my order from them, and on the same day I noticed that Tex Thrown had listed a Bridgesii Mosntrose as well, so I ordered it and sent a message to them asking when they would ship. I got an immediate reply that my order was all ready to go, and sure enough my cactus showed up very soon after. Not only was communication superb, shipping exceptionally fast, and the price considerably lower than the other seller I had initially placed an order with, but my cactus came amazingly well packaged and entirely unharmed. I am very, very happy with my order from Tex Thrown, and would highly recommend them!
