Oreocereus trollii Old Man of the Mountain

Size Guide

$10.00

The Oreocereus trollii is a lovely columnar cactus named after the German botanist Wilhelm Troll, that grows with thick white hair over its brown spines. These hairs allow it to thrive in full-sun environments, and can become sparse if the plant is grown in too much shade. This plant can produce red flowers, usually after it has grown a few feet tall. 

Like most cactus, Oreocereus trollii grows best in a gritty, well-draining mix which allows it's roots to dry in-between watering. This plant grows best in partial shade where it can get all the benefits of bright light without being scorched on hot days.
