Planting & Care

Sunlight: Strong sunlight.

Soil: free draining soils.

Water: Plenty of water during the summer, but almost none over the winter period.

Temprature: Does not prefer high temperatures. It can withstand hard frosts down to -10°C.

Fertilizer: At the start of the growth period, apply a dressing of long term slow fertiliser and stir it into the surface soil in the pot. As an alternative, fertiliser may be incorporated with the potting mixture when repotting.

Care:
  • Cacti grown indoors tend to gather dust.
  • These spiny cacti can be effectively washed down with a soft shaving brush.
  • When cleaning them, it is a good idea to protect the roots by laying a piece of plastic sheeting over the potting mixture to prevent undue wetting at the base of the plant.
  • Use newspaper as a wrapping to protect the hands from the spines when handling the cactus.

Use
Ornamental use:
  • Cleistocactus strausii makes an attractive landscape plant and or container patio plant where some height is needed, being an attractive accent plant.
  • This columnar tall cactus is suitable for large landscape.
  • Indoors make a spectacular ascent plant as mature Cleistocactus strausii and will flower if it is provided with enough light.
