The fairy castle cactus––also known by its scientific name Acanthocereus tetragonus––is a slow grower that can reach up to six feet tall. Other common names include night-blooming cereus, triangle cactus, and barbed-wire cactus. This columnar cactus plant is native to Central America, Mexico, northern South America, the Caribbean, and the southern United States. While the fairy castle cactus rarely blooms, it will sometimes produce large white or yellow flowers.

The fairy castle cactus is a low-maintenance, slow-growing plant that is a good plant for inexperienced gardeners.

Light: Fairy castle cacti kept as house plants should be grown in a space that receives lots of sunlight. If these plants do not receive enough light, the colors will fade and their columns will become misshapen. This is a full-sun plant, but it will survive in partial shade.

Watering:To avoid overwatering your fairy castle cactus, allow the cactus potting soil to become dry between waterings. Standing water or soggy soil will cause root rot or attract mealybugs, which will likely result in your cactus perishing.

Be aware the ceramic planter is not included, but was used to aesthetic purposes
