Cleistocactus Ritteri x is a shrubby columnar cactus, branching basally. The short stiff spines along the stems. Regularly water in summer but allow the substratum to completely dry up before irrigating again. In winter, keep it drier. Cleistocactus Ritteri x needs full sun exposure but protects in summer from the harsh sun. Repotting every year will help keep it healthy and also encourage growth.

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.
