Cereus Peruvianus is a cactus originally from South America, specifically Brazil. It is a columnar cactus that grows to 6-7 meters in its homeland. In our domestic conditions, it can also reach several meters with proper care.

The felt areoles bear up to 2.5 cm long (in an adult plant), brown to black, strongly stinging spines. Cereus peruvianus produces an unbranched stem as a young plant. When it reaches a height of approx. 1 meter, it begins to branch off in the upper part of the stem and often becomes woody in the lower part. The number of ribs is very variable in plants, usually 4, but they can grow to 5-9 ribs.

Cereus peruvianus is a fast-growing, unpretentious, adaptable cactus that will reward you with flowers. The older it is, the more it will branch out with you. It is a hardy plant that can be grown from spring to autumn and outdoors. In winter, it requires cover in a frost-free room around 5 - 12 degrees.
