Botanical Name: Oreocereus trollii 'The Old Man of the Andes Cactus'

LIGHT: It thrives in arid environments and requires well-draining soil to prevent moisture-related issues. This cactus prefers full sun exposure but can tolerate partial shade.

WATER: Make sure the soil is dry between waterings. This will stop the roots and lower edges of the plant from becoming waterlogged or rotting. During winter months you can cut back on the water, as cacti become dormant during this time with less sun and cooler night temperatures.

TOXICITY: Non-toxic to pets or people. Best to keep out of reach of curious pets or kids to avoid accidental injury with cactus spikes.
