This attractive columnar cactus bears fine needles very close together. It can reach up to 1.5m in height. Summer and winter, it is recommended to give it heat and light. In order to contemplate its pretty yellow flowers, you need a lot of patience. Indeed, in addition to being ephemeral, its flowering occurs only after ten years and lasts between 2 or 3 days. Feel free to clean away dust buildup with a soft, damp brush.
Attention! Risk of toxicity if swallowed.
