Oreocereus trollii ‘Old Man of the Andes’ Cactus 15cm pot
As with most cacti, ‘Old Man of the Andes’ prefers plenty of bright sunlight – though be mindful of temperature, as this specimen does not thrive in 35+ degrees without extra watering and shelter from the hottest afternoon sun. A sunny North or western exposure windowsill will be just the ticket, allowing this variety to reach its full height of 50 cm’s while also producing offsets around its base to form a small clump of colour and texture!
Beyond this, a thorough yet infrequent watering routine will protect ‘Old Man of the Andes’ from issues such as rot – especially when coupled with a porous soil mixture within a well-draining pot. This Argentine native can tolerate a light frost, provided it is not housed within wet soil.
The plant is sold in a plastic grow pot. Add a decorative pot to complete the look.
