Description:

Beautiful cactaceae from South America, which in nature develops a columnar stem, very branched at the base, even 2 meters high. It has rather ample and tuberculate ribs along which, from small roundish areoles, come out thorns even 2 cm long of a characteristic black color (hence the name of the species which in Greek means just "burnt, blackish"). The dark shade of the showy spines contrasts pleasantly with the blue-violaceous epidermis of the stem, for an absolutely unique final chromatic effect. Another characteristic for which C. aethiops is particularly loved are undoubtedly its gigantic flowers: funnel-shaped, have pink-violet outer petals, the inner ones lighter and can reach even dimensions of 22 cm, a real jewel of nature!

Plant care:

It likes an exposure to full sun in rather airy locations.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 10 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately and only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce it to once every two months in autumn and to suspend it completely in winter.

A well-draining and mineral-rich substrate is an optimal solution, for example a soil suitable for cacti mixed with pumice.

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