Product Description

Cleistocactus ianthinus, commonly known as the silver torch or silver torch cactus, is a striking succulent native to Bolivia and Argentina. Here's a description of the plant and some tips for its cultivation:

Description:

  1. Appearance: Cleistocactus ianthinus typically grows in a columnar form, reaching heights of up to 10 feet (3 meters) in its natural habitat, though in cultivation it often stays smaller.

  2. Stems: The stems are ribbed and covered in clusters of fine, silver-white spines, giving the plant a silvery appearance. These spines are actually modified leaves and provide protection from predators and excessive sunlight.

  3. Flowers: During the spring and summer, Cleistocactus ianthinus produces bright red-orange tubular flowers that emerge from the sides of the stems. The flowers are typically around 1.5 inches (4 cm) long and add a beautiful contrast to the silvery stems.

  4. Growth Habit: This cactus is a relatively fast grower compared to some other cacti species, and it can produce multiple stems over time, forming dense clumps.
