We’re big fans of this amazing blue cactus!


No one quite knows why the blue cactus, or Cereus Peruvianus, is blue! It may have adapted to protect itself from the sun or from pests, no one is quite sure. It’s certainly eye-catching though!


Blue cactus is very easy to grow and look after - and it grows very fast!  It’s a bold statement piece that will add interest to any room in your house. Once you buy a cactus you will be hooked! 


The Cereus likes a bright room but don’t put it directly in the sun.  It will look fabulous in a pot on a wooden floor, or in your sitting room as a focal point.  Anywhere really that has good light!


Cacti aren’t difficult to look after and are great houseplants if you’re a beginner to indoor plants.


If you’re buying this wonderful Cactus as a gift, we’ll enclose a handwritten card for free along with the delivery. Just include your gift message at the basket stage of ordering and we’ll do the rest! We’ll leave out the paperwork too!
