Description:

It is also commonly called "Our Father", "Blue Flame", "Bilberry Cactus", "Whortleberry Cactus", "Blue Candle" and "Blue Myrtle cactus". It is a columnar plant, covered with a white patina, which can branch out and take the shape of a candlestick. In nature it can reach up to 4 meters in height. This particular 'variegated' variant presents on its sky-blue stem, characterized by 5-8 ribs and sparse spines, more or less large and intense yellow spots, which make each plant unique and particular. It blooms from February to April, and its flowers are white and small in size. A curious fact: the fruits of Myrtillocactus are edible and resemble blueberries, a characteristic from which its name derives.

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, and reduce watering to once every two months in autumn and 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.
