Cleistocactus winteri (Hildewintera aureispina) - Golden Rat tail Cactus

Cleistocactus winteri (Hildewintera aureispina) - Golden Rat tail Cactus

This unusual cactus is perfect for a hanging basket.

Light: Full Sun. Cacti need bright light to survive. My rule of thumb is always to let them have a view of the sky. The best bet is a sunny windowsill.

Watering: These plants are drought tolerant. Only water when the soil completely dries out, as overwatering can quickly kill these plants. Cut way back on watering in winter. 

Temperature: 5-30°C is a good range, but this plant can tolerate down to -2C for short spells if kept dry.

Potting: A well-draining mix is ideal for this plant. Our Savvy Succa would be a great fit.

Hot tips: This is not a fan of humidity, so avoid those steamy bathrooms.

Pet Friendly: No
