English

It is also called as "Our Father", "Blue Flame", "Bilberry Cactus", "Whortleberry Cactus", "Blue Candle" and "Blue Myrtle cactus".

It is a columnar plant, covered with a white glaze, which can branch out and take the shape of a candlestick.

In nature it can reach up to 4 meters in height. Its blue-sky stem is made of 5-8 ribs and sparse spines.

It blooms from February to April, its flowers are white and small.

A curious fact: the fruits of Myrtillocactus are edible and resemble blueberries, from this characteristic, in fact, derives its name.

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.
