Cereus Cactus

Notify me when this product is available:

Native to South America, the Cereus Cactus (Cereus peruvianas) is a striking plant. It has a blueish-green hue, distinct spiny ribs, and can grow up to incredible, tree-like heights in the wild. There are quite a few varieties that are slightly different in growing habit and foliage colour.

The Cereus Cactus appreciates a warm, dry environment with minimal water, and plenty of light.

Cereus Cacti like to dry out completely between waterings. The most common mistake made with these plants is overwatering. Make sure that you are letting the soil thoroughly dry before giving your plant water. Cereus Cacti are susceptible to root rot, so it’s very important that you do not water the plant if you detect any moisture in the soil. During the winter months, watering frequency should decrease, sometimes to as little as once a month. Generally, a cactus will become less stable, droopy, and brown at the base if it is receiving too much water.
