Know Your Plant
Acanthocereus tetragonus, commonly known as "Fairy Castle Cactus" or "Night-blooming Cereus," is a species of cactus native to Mexico and other parts of Central America. It is a unique and visually appealing cactus that is popular among succulent enthusiasts.
Here are some key characteristics and care tips for Acanthocereus tetragonus:
Appearance: Acanthocereus tetragonus has a distinctive columnar growth habit with multiple branches that resemble turrets or towers, hence the common name "Fairy Castle Cactus." The branches are typically four-sided (hence the species name "tetragonus") and covered in small spines. The overall shape of the plant resembles a miniature fairy tale castle.
Light requirements: Fairy Castle Cactus thrives in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but intense, prolonged exposure may lead to sunburn. Place the cactus near a sunny window where it can receive several hours of bright light each day.
Temperature: This cactus prefers warm temperatures between (18°C to 47°C). It can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures, but it is best to protect it from frost.
Watering: Acanthocereus tetragonus is a drought-tolerant cactus that requires infrequent watering. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings and water thoroughly, ensuring that excess water drains away. During the winter months, reduce watering frequency to mimic the plant's natural dormant period.
Soil: Use a well-draining cactus or succulent potting mix for Fairy Castle Cactus. The soil should be porous and able to drain excess water efficiently. Adding perlite or sand to the soil mix can improve drainage.
Propagation: Acanthocereus tetragonus can be propagated from stem cuttings. Take a healthy stem cutting and let it callus for a few days. Then, plant the cutting in a well-draining soil mix and water sparingly until roots develop.
Blooming: While the Fairy Castle Cactus does produce flowers, they are usually short-lived and open at night. The flowers are typically white or cream-colored and emit a pleasant fragrance. Flowering may occur in the summer months under proper conditions.
Remember to handle Fairy Castle Cactus with care, as the spines can cause skin irritation. It's also a good idea to wear gloves or use a towel or tongs when handling the plant.
With the right care and conditions, Acanthocereus tetragonus can be a beautiful and intriguing addition to your cactus collection or indoor garden.
