Cleistocactus winteri, golden rattail cactus



Watering: Water when the soil has totally dries out. The warmer the air the more frequently you’ll need to water. When it is cloudy and cold, it will take the soil longer to dry out.  Keep the soil even drier during late autumn and winter when the rattail Cactus needs to “rest” for a few months in a cool area. This dormant period is necessary for it to bloom well.

Temperature: It’s hard to believe, but the rattail Cactus can survive temperatures below freezing.
Light: Very bright indirect light, no direct sun.

Soil: Use a Cactus mix that drains quickly.

Fertiliser: Feed only when the plant is actively growing with a liquid plant food high in potassium.

Pot size 120mm
