Description:

Also known as "Blue cereus". This cactacea plant, with a columnar habit, can reach up to 1 meter in height. The stem has rounded and slightly tuberculated ribs with sparse downy areoles, from which very long and rigid yellow spines protrude. Its strength is its turquoise blue color, rare in nature, which makes it highly sought after and appreciated by green collectors and cactus lovers. Flowering occurs in summer, only on the plants higher than one meter, blooming, at the apex, with large, white, nocturnal flowers, often with purplish brown shades.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however avoid direct sunlight.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 8 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately, only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once a week in spring and summer and suspend watering completely in autumn and winter.

A well draining soil is an optimal solution, for example formed by a mix of peat and pumice so that water does not stagnate.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
