Cereus Tetragonus Fairy Castle is a miniature columnar cactus species that branches also will slowly form a crowded pyramidal mass of green stems. The overall effect is of a “castle” shape plant. It does not grow any higher than 30 cm. It needs bright light, and some direct sun, but avoid direct full sunlight if over 30 c. Water thoroughly during the growing season when soil is dry to the touch. Cereus Tetragonus Fairy Castle needs a well-drained soil mix with small gravel added to ensure drainage. Cactus plants are for sale here in the shop.
Watch your plants for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.
The plant 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.
