This easy-care plant does not need much water.
In summer you can put the plant in the sun (indoors or outdoors) and in winter it likes a cool, light location indoors. So it starts well rested into the next spring and even flourishes the better.
Pamper your cactus in spring and summer with special cactus fertilizer.
Ensure that children and pets do not injure themselves on the plant.
Symbolism, colours & shapes
The Myrtillocactus is not associated with any symbolism and there is no legend about the plant. But you can make one up in a jiffy. The cactus is a great symbol of sociability and fellowship. And the fact that he stings well, that can also be understood as a suggestion to do something nice with friends. Right?
If you create perfect conditions for this new friend, he quickly grows into a handsome guy ... and it then measures up to 5 meters from head to toe. After the green-white flowers, blue berries grow on this cactus. Hence the epithet “Blueberry Cactus”. In Mexico it is even eaten as a snack. The green of the plant body has the same function as the green of the leaves of other plants: it enables the plant to produce oxygen and sugar.
Originally the Myrtillocactus is native to Mexico and Guatemala
