Cereus Hildmannianus Monstrose grows in a tight bunch of twisted stems or crested pieces.  The body is green and has white hairs and spines on top of the crested part. Regularly water in summer but allow the substratum to completely dry up before irrigating again. In winter, keep it drier. Cereus Hildmannianus Monstrose needs full sun exposure but protects in summer from the harsh sun. Repotting every year will help keep it healthy and also encourage growth. Buy cactus here.


Australian Desert Blooms Nursery is producing many more cacti, cactus, and succulents for you to buy online. If anytime this cactus is out of stock know for sure that it will be back as quickly as possible. As we produce all our own stock here in Ipswich near Brisbane.


Watch your Cereus Hildmannianus Monstrose for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.

Cereus Hildmannianus Monstrose requires more sunlight if it looks like growing out of shape. Burning is a common fact when having new plants. Best to gradually give them more sunlight as the weeks go by. Instead of placing it in straight sunlight.

Allow them to sit for a week before giving them a good drink. Depending on the season. Make sure they dry out completely before watering again. Don’t forget to give them a spray with soapy water to keep the bugs off them. And provide very good ventilation.
