Product Description

The Cereus atacamensis, commonly known as "Cardón," is an impressive cactus species found in the Quebrada del Guatín region of Antofagasta, Chile. This iconic cactus, belonging to the Cactaceae family, dominates the landscape of the area with its towering, columnar form, standing out against the backdrop of the arid desert terrain.

Despite the harsh environmental conditions of Quebrada del Guatín, characterized by intense sunlight and dry soil, Cereus atacamensis thrives, showcasing its remarkable resilience. Its presence contributes to the unique allure of the region, offering visitors a glimpse into the fascinating world of desert flora.


  1. Container Cultivation: Cereus atacamensis can be cultivated in containers with well-draining cactus soil. Ensure the pot has drainage holes at the bottom and place it in a sunny location, preferably near a south or west-facing window.

  2. Ground Cultivation: In areas with similar environmental conditions to its native habitat, Cereus atacamensis can be cultivated directly in the ground. Plant it in well-draining soil in a sunny location, ensuring good air circulation around the plant.

  3. Drought Resistance: Once established, Cereus atacamensis demonstrates excellent drought resistance, making it suitable for xeriscaping and low-water landscaping projects. Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings, particularly during the dormant winter months.

By following these cultivation techniques, enthusiasts can successfully cultivate Cereus atacamensis in the Quebrada del Guatín region of Antofagasta, Chile, and enjoy its majestic beauty reminiscent of the desert landscape of the area.
