Hailing from the mountains of Mexico, this large flowering cactus was only discovered in the 70’s. In its natural environment it doesn’t receive a lot of direct sunlight, so a filtered light or morning sun position is ideal. It also makes them ideal as house plants.

The flowers are big and bright, and can appear a couple of times a year. Each star shaped bloom is up to 2.5cm across and will last between two and eight weeks – unlike most cactus blooms which die after a day or so. It needs a dry winter to flower well.

The leaves of William’s Cactus grow in a flat rosette up to 10cm across. The leaves are green with a hint of pink and a pointed tip. Rosettes will shoot from the side of the plant.

Cactus are a top plant for all ages and a great way to encourage kids to garden. All you need to grow Cactus successfully is well drained soil, a sunny position and remember, while they are built to withstand the dry they do require the occasionally water.
