Native to Ecuador and Peru
Opuntia Cylindrical Cristata enjoys bright indirect light -such as sunlight shining through a shear curtain; about six hours a day. Full sun exposure may lead to plant scaring.
Opuntia Cylindrical Cristata needs very little water. We recommend a splash of water once every month. Be careful not to get water directly on the plant as the folds in the Opuntia Cylindrical Cristata can retain water and moisture leading to black fungus spots if not allowed to dry throughly.
Opuntia Cylindrical Cristata prefers a hot, dry temperature. In the winters, you can place closer to a heater to allow this cacti to thrive.
