Melocactus curvispinus extends from Mexico to the south of Peru--comprising the north east of Colombia, Venezuela and the Caribbean. Once a Melocactus reaches maturity, its stem will stop growing and its cephalium (that bristle-coated structure on the apex of the plant) begins to grow, and will continue growing for the remainder of it’s life. This makes mature cephaliated Melocacti highly prized amongst rare cactus collectors.
