Espostoa Melanostele - Peruvian Old Lady Cactus
OVERVIEW+ Comes in a 8" plastic container.
Water well in the summer hot months, but allow the soil to dry out during waterings. Fertilizer monthly during the growing months. During the wintertime, keep the cactus dry with minimal waterings.
Cactus mix or blend of sand, perlite, and topsoil is great for this cactus. Preferred pot method is a terra-cotta or unglazed pot so that it can wick away any access moisture. They like their soil on the dry side.
Too much water can lead to root rot / Common pests: Mealy, Scale, and flying pests that like to hide within the hair.
WINTER TRAVEL: PLEASE MAKE SURE TO PURCHASE A HEAT-PACK (FOUND WITHIN OUR STORE) IF THE PLANT IS TRAVELING IN BELOW 50 DEGREE WEATHER.
