There's some debate about the actual species of this popular, dwarf monstrose cactus cultivar. Some say the species is a small, monstrose form of Acanthocereus tetragonus, a creeping type of cactus native to Florida and the Caribbean.

Some say it's dwarf monstrose Cereus peruvianus, the Peruvian Apple Cactus.

Some say it's Cereus hildmannianus in a dwarf monstrose form. 

Perhaps they all are correct; perhaps there are several Fairy Castle forms out there under these different species. They all have a lot in common; they are all tropical species and happily accept more water and humidity than your average southwestern cactus species. Can even tolerate indoor conditions such as the role of Office Plant.
