Cereus Forbesii Cactus Seeds

Cereus forbesii is a branched shrubby or treelike cactus, with blue-green cylindrical-columnar stems armed with long spines. It attains a height of about 2 meters with a distinct trunk up to 40 cm in diameter). In spring to early summer it produces large funnel-form flowers which are white or pinkish white inside. This species will readily flower in a Northern climate. They are beginner friendly cacti but cold intolerant. Make sure they are not exposed to freezing temperatures ( Hardy to -2°C) or they may die.  Since they are rapid growers, they need plenty of space for their roots. Repotting should be done every other year, or when the plant has outgrown its pot.
