Our Trichocereus bridgesii ‘Monstrose’ or commonly known as Penis Plant or Penis Cactus has many white patches for a long time. I don’t know why, it looks ugly but otherwise it seems to be healthy.

Only today I noticed something else. The tip of the biggest cactus cracked open. I think it was the four days in a row over 40 deg. C heat recently that had caused the mishap. Now it looks even uglier with big cracks on the tip surrounded by dry scaly skin. Ouch….. looks absolutely disgusting!

I will update later if there are any changes to this weird plant.

Months later, from the crack a new growth is forming. Very odd :)

New growth on the crack!
