The Cereus Cactus appreciates a warm, dry environment with minimal water and plenty of light. Under ideal conditions, a white scented flower blooms once a year in summer, for a single night and closes at sunrise.
Thrives in bright direct light. Can tolerate bright indirect light but will not tolerate low light conditions. Rotate periodically to ensure even growth on all sides.
Water once a month, allow soil to dry out completely between waterings. Water much less in winter.
Tip: Withhold water from the plant for about four weeks in January or February to encourage new growth in the warmer seasons.
18-28°C – Keep temperature above 15°C in winter.
This plant has extreme heat tolerance and can handle temperatures over 38°C with light shade.
This plant is pet-friendly!
