Meet Carlos the cactus. A pricky little fellow who will be a friend for life!
Cereus Cacti have tall elongated bodies and a column like appearance, and are native to South America. They are very easy to care for and make great first plants. They have a lovely blue/grey tone and are often called a Blue Torch Cactus. They look very attractive styled in your home.
They can grow pretty tall and so often need extra support in the form of a bamboo stake.
Plant Care Tips:
- Watering: Water deeply about once a month when the soil is dry, let the pot drain thoroughly. Avoid soggy soild which can cause the cactus to rot. Do not water during the Winter season Oct-Feb
- Light: Loves full sun and thrives in direct sunlight, prefers a sunny spot on south facing windowsill, avoid low light spots
- Temperature/Feeding: will be happy in normal household temperatures, avoid fluctuating temperatures. Feed 2-3 times during Spring
