Silver Torch Cactus - Cleistocactus strausii

Regular price $25.00

This striking cactus is also called ‘Wooly Torch’ due to its fuzzy appearance given by the silvery fine needles that cover its stem. We’ve potted this one with our special cactus soil blend in a ceramic pot with drainage hole & tray.

LIGHT Your torch cactus needs as much bright light as you can give it. It will tolerate indirect sunlight but will not thrive as it will in full sun. Rotate it frequently to prevent it leaning to one side as it reaches towards the light.

WATER Water deeply then allow to dry thoroughly before watering again. Water slowly at the base ( of the plant (avoid wetting the plant) until water comes out the drainage hole. Watering frequency will depend on time of year and amount of light received, but a good starting point is every 2-4 weeks in the warmer Spring and Summer months, and every 4-6 weeks from late Fall through Winter.

SIZE Approximately 13”H X 5”W (Pot Size: 5"D)
