Cleistocactus Straussii ‘Silver Torch’ Cactus 15cm pot
Cleistocactus strausii has a green stem that looks silvery grey because of the short, whitish spines that completely cover it. In a 15cm pot, the plant can reach a height of 1m.
This cactus does not flower until it is 10 to 15 years old. When Cleistocactus Strausii has become 1m or taller, it will produce narrow, tubular flowers from areoles at the top of the main stem. The flowers are 8 to 10cm long and carmine-red and they appear in summer. They never fully open, each last only for four or five days.
The plant is sold in a plastic grow pot. Add a decorative pot to complete the look.
