Weberbauerocereus (Cactus)

Varieties currently unavailable

It takes its name from the botanist Weberbauer who studied it at the beginning of the 20th century, followed by the suffix "cereus", ie 'candelabra', to identify its typically columnar shape. Its narrow green stems can grow up to enormous sizes when grows in the wild, but even in your pot it may reach even two meters high! Weberbauerocereus is easily recognized not only for its habit, but also for its characteristic intense yellow spines, which will give a magnificent touch of color and brightness to your rooms. Here are some easy tips for its proper care and cultivation: Requires exposure to full sun, needs a lot of light during all seasons. When the plants are still very young, it is advisable to avoid direct sun rays during the hottest hours of the day. It has no problems with intense heat, but, on the other hand, it doesn't resist cold temperature conditions: it requires shelter when temperatures drop below 10 °C. It is preferable not to water it too often, only when the soil has been dry for several days. In winter, watering can be completely suspended because, like all succulents, when temperatures are quite low, the water that it stores inside its stems is more than sufficient. A specific soil for cacti, very well draining is required. They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
