Espostoa guentheri f. crestata is a fantastic gift, that will delight the recipient for years.

Espostoa guentheri f. crestata is a cactaceae plant of a crested shape similar to a fan, highly appreciated by green collectors for its uniqueness. Its deep green stems are entirely covered with thin erect and golden spines. Its funnel-shaped blooms of a considerable size are of a yellowish-white color.

!Please note that each plant is unique and variations of appearance may occur between each one.

Plant care:

  • It likes an exposure to full sun in rather airy locations.
  • It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 10 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.
  • Water moderately and only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, and reduce watering to once every two months in autumn and winter.
  • The best soil is a well-draining one, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice, sand or lapilli.
  • They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
