GENERAL INFORMATION

  • This cactus, known as the bilberry cactus or “blue candle”, is a native of the deserts of northern and central Mexico.
  • This cactus has a bluish-green color and waxy surface typical of the species.
  • This waxy layer acts as a sealant, preventing vital water from evaporating in the hot, dry air.
  • For such an imposing plant, its flowers are quite small – just 3 centimeters long at most.

SOIL REQUIREMENT

  • A cactus will require soil that's pebbly, sandy, porous and one that provides excellent drainage and aeration.
  • A pre-mix succulent/cactus potting soil will be suitable.

FEEDING/FERTILIZER REQUIREMENT

  • At a minimum, fertilizing cactus plants once a year is a good rule of thumb, but if you're really organized and can set up a schedule, feeding them 2-3 times per year in the spring, summer and fall will easily satisfy your cacti fertilizer requirements.

LIGHT REQUIREMENT

  • Typically, most cacti species need at least four to six hours of sunlight to thrive.
  • These plants love being in bright and sunny locations.

WATER REQUIREMENT

  • Water a cactus around once a week in the hottest months.
  • In most cases, this is the perfect amount to provide adequate moisture without causing too much water to remain in the soil and soak the roots.
