Golden Rat Tail Cactus (Cleisocactus winteri)
This product is sold out
A relatively large and fast growing cactus that produces many golden coloured arching stems. This fuzzy dude is cliff dwelling native of Bolivia where it is actually threatened in the wild. Like most cacti they are quite cold and drought tolerant and produce masses of beautiful flowers.
Water when the top 2-3cm of soil in the pot dries out during the Spring and Summer months. As the weather starts to cool in Autumn water only when the soil in their pot has dried completely. Don't water at all in Winter.
Super easy here! Likes bright indirect light best but can handle full sun and even a bit of shade!
Over time it's beautiful pendant stems may get up to 1m long. At the moment these dudes have 1 to 2 stems approximately 30 -50cm long.
They come in an approximately 140mm pot (plastic pot sizes vary slightly to suit each ceramic pot, all plants are the same size as plants of the same species ragardless of slight variations in pot size!)
