Cleistocactus winteri ‘Golden rat tail cactus’
Cactus are a varied grouping of plants that range from columnar to stout and spherical to twisted, and with plenty of variation in between. Native to arid regions, cactus have evolved to expect lots of light and very little water. Cacti are also, generally, very easy to care for and want to be left alone so they are an excellent option for a forgetful plant caretaker! Native to Bolivia, this cactus starts out growing upright, and starts to dangle at around 2 feet long making it an excellent plant for a hanging basket! In spring and summer, you might be treated to some bright red blooms from the tail.
