Espostoa melanostele


| /

Espostoa melanostele is another lovely cactus which boasts thick white hair, similar to Espostoa lanata. Espostoa melanostele is a tall-growing, grey-green cactus which becomes quite striking as it grows older, developing an increasingly thicker coat of hair. 

Like most cactus, Espostoa melanostele 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.
