Native to mountainous lands throughout South America, the Silver Torch Cactus is a robust column species that clusters from the base to create breathtaking huddles, reaching heights of 3 metres once fully mature.

 

The Cleistocactus Strausii is best suited for outdoors and can cope with the full day sun, making it perfect for those locations where everything else appears to get toasted.

 

Flowering seasonally, the Cleistocactus Strausii’s red tubular flowers form from the whole stem of each plant, making them a popular species to collect for floral display despite their flowers never fully opening.

Cleistocactus "Silver Torch"

  • WATER: Water generously when soil is dry in Autumn/Summer/Spring, seldom in Winter.  

    OUTDOORS: Absolutely, position your plant in half day sun, a bright shaded area or full day sun. We recommend watering plants in full day sun more frequently in the peak of Summer (biweekly - weekly); this regular watering over summer helps prevent sunburn in extreme weather.

    INDOORS: Not reccommended indoors unless positioned in full day sun.

    NB: The most affordable and efficient way to measure if it is time to water your cacti is by using a water meter. When the meter reads “DRY” its time to water again. Remember, over watering Cacti is the main cause of death. Head to our online store to buy your water meter today!
