Caring for Silver torch

    Cactus 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.
