The Cereus forbesii is native to South America. The spiralled Cereus is such an amazing cactus with a tall, twisted, blue green column covered in spikes. Each one is individual as they grow naturally in the spiral and are not trained into shape. It is a real statement houseplant and very low maintenance making it perfect for both homes and offices. With the right care you may even be lucky to see it flower during the summer months.
Light conditions: position in a spot with indirect, bright light. Can cope with some direct sun (mornings and late afternoon) but any more would cause scorching.
Neediness: Low maintenance.
Watering: do not overwater! It is drought tolerant so best to water on when the soil starts to dry out.
Ideal location: living rooms, studies, bedrooms, offices.
Rate of growth: fast, can eventually reach over 2m tall.
Temperature: normal room temperature and not below 8c at night.
Pets: this plant is safe around pets but mind the spikes!
Sizing: Small: W11cm x H20cm, Large: W14cm x H50cm (Pictured)
