Silver Torch

This 8 year old Silver Torch cactus, or Cleistocactus Strausii is a perennial cactus native to high mountain regions of Bolivia and Argentina, above 3,000. It can reach a height of 3m. This cactus prefers free draining soils, strong sunlight, but not high temperatures — in fact it can withstand hard frosts down to -10°C. In its natural habitat it receives plenty of water during the summer, but almost none over the winter.

In a 20cm pot the plant can reach a height of 1.5m (5 feet) and will probably consist of several stems. The Silver torch flowers when they reach 10 to 15 years old.

Care:  The Silver Torch is an easy to grow plant if over-watering is avoided.
