Silver Torch cactus is a strikingly fluffy (but prickly!) cactus that really evokes uniqueness and fantasy to any garden.
Torch cactus are fantastic for potted arrangements as they will grow very slender and are extremely drought tolreant. It will also pup and shoot from the base naturally so they just look so much better with age!
Silver torch cactus must be kept dry in winter and minimal water in summer, doesnt love super hot sun in summer but it will survive!
It will tolerate -10 degrees celcius in winter if kept dry
- Cleistocactus Strausii
