Cereus peruvianus Monstrosus is a striking plant and hard to find plant in this shape and size that really stands out from the cactus crowd. The colouration is a gorgous blue and the they all come with a unque shape. It’s statuesque and certainly looks as though it’s come straight from an arid plain!

It blooms mainly in summer with large (6-7 inches in diameter), exotic, white to pinkish white flowers that open in the evening and remain open into the next day. They are pollinated by hummingbirds, bats or insects. The fruit which follows is delicious, similar to dragon fruit in structure and flavor and contains small edible seeds called pitaya. Fruits mature on the plant for a long time and are red to pinkish red when ripe. Fruit must be eaten quickly after harvesting or it will begin to ferment.

Light/care: A big sun lover, Cereus Peruvianus Monstrosus is very easy to look after and requires little watering - it is used to really dry, hot weather so it’s low maintenance! When you’re thinking about Cereus peruvianus ‘Monstrosus’ care, always think about the climate it would live in naturally and the sort of weather it would thrive in - and that will give you a good idea of how to look after it!

Origin: This plant is native to the state of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where it grows in southern humid to subhumid forests on rocky outcroppings in mata de planalto.
