A rare fan-shaped cactus, that makes each specimen unique and therefore highly sought after by green collectors. In its classic form, Lophocereus schottii is a cactacea plant of a columnar shape, that is found mainly in Central America. It consists of an opaque green body of a characteristic cylindrical shape, marked by deep ribs, on each of which white areoles are distributed; numerous small greyish spines sprout on them, which are robust and straight.

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 6 °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, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice, sand or lapilli.

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