BOTANICAL NAME_ Cleistocactus strausii (native to Bolivia and Argentina)

AKA_ Silver Torch Cactus, Woolly Cactus

FEATURES_The Cleistocactus strausii has a green stem that takes on a silver-grey appearance due to its short, whitish dense spines. It is an erect columnar cacti with ribbed, eventually branched, cylindrical stems bearing dense spines and tubular red flowers in summer.  Grows to 1.5m.

PLANT PERSONALITY_ Hairy and lovable, lighting the way for others.



Potted into a PK Handmade Planter (wheel thrown pottery) using raku clay and glazed with a gloss finish (lilac blue on raku clay).  Planter with drainage hole/s measuring 13 cm w x 10 cm h using a quality cacti-perlite-peat mix.

During Spring and Summer, water deeply then allow to dry out between waterings. Keep the soil dry during late Autumn and winter when this cacti needs to “rest” for a few months in a sheltered, warm spot. This dormant period is necessary for it to bloom well.  Position in a partial shade to full sun position outdoors or bright light indoors. Liquid feed at 1/4 to 1/2 strength of other plants during the growing season.
