Monkey Tail Cactus

Monkey Tail Cactus

Introducing our Monkey Tail Cactus Cuttings! Native to Bolivia and Argentina, these sustainably sourced cuttings showcase the captivating beauty of the Cleistocactus winteri. With elongated stems covered in golden spines resembling a monkey's tail, these low-maintenance cacti are a unique addition to any plant collection.

The Monkey Tail Cactus features a whimsical appearance, with shaggy, hair-like spines that give it a charming and distinctive look. It thrives in arid conditions, requiring minimal watering and preferring well-draining soil. It can thrive both indoors and outdoors.

To prevent the risk of root rot, it is advisable to maintain a shaded environment for the cutting. This shading helps protect the delicate cutting from excessive sunlight exposure, which can lead to moisture loss and stress. Additionally, it is important to refrain from watering the cutting until it begins to develop roots. Although they do best if soil is ever so slightly moist. Once roots begin to develop you may introduce it to more sun and water it every couple of weeks unless it's getting rainfall.

Once your cutting has roots, place your Monkey Tail Cactus in bright, indirect sunlight or partial shade. Use a well-draining cactus or succulent soil mix and allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Keep the temperature between 65°F to 80°F (18°C to 27°C) for ideal conditions.

At Creative Cactus Company, we take pride in shipping our prickly pals in a sustainable style. We kindly remind our customers to exercise caution when unboxing these desert darlings. So get ready to unwrap your green companions and remove them from the packaging with gloves and or a magazine, mind the spikes, and let the desert charm fill your space!
