*This specimen plant is around 12" tall. 

This cactus likes strong sunlight, but not high temperatures — in fact, it can withstand hard frosts down to -10°C. In its natural habitat, it receives plenty of water during the summer, but almost none over the winter period.

Cleistocactus strausii has a green stem that looks silvery grey because of the short, whitish spines that completely cover it. In a 20cm (8") pot, the plant can reach a height of 1.5 m (5') and will probably consist of several stems.

This cactus does not flower until it is 10 to 15 years old. When Cleistocactus strausii has become 1m (3') or taller, it will produce narrow, tubular flowers from areoles at the top of the main stem. The flowers are 8 to 10cm (3-4") long and carmine-red and they appear in summer. They never fully opened, each last only for four or five days.

Add this unique and fun cactus to your collection of plants and enjoy watching it grow! Be sure to shop through our other plant collections today!
