Espostoa Lanata also known as Peruvian Snowball Cactus is a slow-growing woolly columnar cactus and well adapted to high altitudes. The ribs and the sharp are mainly hidden by tissue woolly and it flowers at night..
Originating from the hilly regions, this species requires low maintenance and enough sunlight to grow. This needs a little more water than most cacti for a healthy growth.
If kept outside it requires full sunlight and a bright spot if kept inside. During the growing season fertilising and watering regularly is the key to best results.
It is an excellent plant for garden rockery settings, desert type landscapes, patios and botanical gardens
