Looking for a low-maintenance cactus that can add some charm to your indoor or outdoor space? Look no further than Cleistocactus samaipatanus (sometimes also known as Bolivicereus samaipatanus), native to Bolivia!  

This tall, columnar cactus is a true showstopper with its long, thin lime green ribbed stems that can grow up to 5 feet tall and are covered in white or pale-yellow radial spines. With its lovely bright red, funnel-shaped flowers during the summer and spring, this cactus plant is sure to be a hit with both experienced gardeners and beginners alike.  

This Cleistocactus is also easy to care for and only requires minimal watering once every 2-3 weeks in the growing season as well as bright sunlight because in low light it may bloom less. These cacti thrive in sandy, well-drained soil. So, you should choose the right soil for your stunning Cleistocactus plant with extreme caution, as too much water can cause root and stem rot. 

Additionally, use a natural fertilizer of NPK with an equal mix of almost 5-10-5 for the healthy growth of your cactus plant. To manage the growth, these Cleistocactus samaipatanus can occasionally be pruned. Remember, if they are not overwatered, they usually do not have pest or disease problems. They can be easily propagated by seeds or stem cuttings. It can be grown indoors in cooler climates, but it can also thrive outside in USDA zones 9-11.
