These characterful cacti are known as golden rat tail and come from a small area in Bolivia. They grow in clumps of finger like stems that create truly unique shapes. Paired with our Desert (night) Planter these plants make a cool looking, easy care plant gift!
The golden rat tail's 'fingers' grow quickly in the right conditions and will evolve their shape, so the plant may change its look over time. They will prefer to be kept in bright light areas but will also tolerate bright indirect or low light areas.
These cacti are very easy care for as they require less frequent watering and are drought tolerant. A good choice for the at-home-less-often friend. Even though it can handle a bit of neglect, to keep it growing happily, water the plant every 2 weeks or so, when the soil is completely dried out.
Important to know: As plants are natural products, form, pattern and colour will vary.
