Espostoa lanata


| /

Espostoa lanata, or 'The Peruvian Old Man Cactus' as it is also known, is a slow-growing cylindrical cactus which is covered in a striking layer of thick, white hair. This plant can grow to be 50 to 100cm tall in 10 to 20 years. 

Like most cactus, Espostoa lanata grows best in a gritty, well-draining mix which allows it's roots to dry in-between watering. This plant prefers partial shade or full sun, and will produce less of it's white hair - which protects it from excess sunlight, when grown in the shade.
