Το σχήμα του φυτού το κάνει να μοιάζει με κοράλλι με τον κυματιστό πρασινωπό μίσχο του, που με παρατεταμένη έκθεση στον ήλιο παίρνει ένα όμορφο μωβ χρώμα.

Κατά μήκος της κορυφής υπάρχουν μικρά αγκάθια καλυμμένα με λευκή πούδρα.

Τα μεγάλα λουλούδια, μήκους άνω των 10 εκατοστών, ανοίγουν τη νύχτα.


The shape of the plant makes it look like a coral with its wavy greenish stem, which with prolonged exposure to the sun takes on a beautiful purple color. 

Along the crest there are small spines covered with a white down. The crested form hardly blooms, however the flower may bloom from non-crested stems. 

The large flowers, more than 10 cm long, open at night.
