Easy to cultivate, grow and care for, the Cereus Spiralis is a mysterious plant, first discovered in Peru and imported into Europe in the 80’s.
Nowadays this rare beauty can be purchased here in Australia but is hard to come by. Growing as striking column plants with exquisite large cream flowers, this species can grow from 2-4metres tall, with many twisting arms.
In terms of care, be mindful not to keep this twisting triton in cold weather over winter, it is not a fan of frost.
C. Forbesii Spiralis
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: This plant is comfortable in well lit indoor areas - preferably close to a window (preferably 2-3+ hours of direct sun on a sunny day)
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!
