Description:

Also called 'Monkey's tail', due to its drooping habit. Its stem is covered with thick, long, thin and soft white or yellowish spines. In nature it grows, hanging on the Cerro El Fraile mountain at an altitude of 1300-1500 meters above sea level. For this reason, it is perfect for decorating hanging pots. Its flashy red flower, highlighted by a white down, is a really beautiful thing to see. It is an easy-to-grow cactus, which makes it perfect for begginers. Synonym Cleistocactus winteri subs. colademononis.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however, avoid direct sunlight especially during the hottest hours of the day.

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 but 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 winter.

The best soil is a well draining one, for example formed by a mixture of peat and pumice so that the water does not stagnate.

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