Plant Care


During summer, Water daily or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. During Winter season water once in 2 days or when the soil starts to become slightly dry at the top. Keep the soil lightly moist at all times, but do not overwater as this will cause brown spots and leaf drop. Curly or dry leaves suggest, the plant is dry and needs watering. Water in the early morning or late evening when temperatures are cooler. Always check your soil before watering.


Bright indoor light


During summer season or when the temperature is above 45°C place the plant in shaded area. During winter season or the when the temperature is below 45°C the plants can be directly placed in direct/indirect sunlight.


Apply succulent fertilizers once in 40 days. For best results use Folikraft ready to use Succulent Plant Food.

Plant Bio

The Peruvian Apple Cactus is a Columnar variety of cactus with color variations ranging from yellow / green, green, blue / green, and gray. During the growing season, Apr - Oct, the cactus will produce 6-8” diameter white colored flowers that only bloom for one night.  They also produce an edible fruit the size of a lemon, similar to a dragon fruit.
** All cuttings can't be perfect, we always aim to give more, but cutting size may vary +/- 2in from selected size **
Sunlight: Full sun. When indoors, placing the cactus near an east or west facing window is best for optimal light.  If placed outside during the warm months (50+ degrees), we recommend a covered patio that gets really good light
Watering – drought tolerant species. Water once a month.  Make sure the soil dries completely 3 days after watering.
Soil – premixed bags of cactus soil. You can make your own with sand, organic soil, perlite, and small lava rock. DO NOT use regular potting soil.
Issues – Root rot is caused when the soil does not have proper drainage and stays moist for too long. We recommend planting your cutting in a clay or terracotta pot with a drainage hole to achieve the highest soil breathability.  Scale and Mealybugs can be treated with insecticidal soaps.
