Cereus Peruvianus (Peruvian Apple Cactus) is native to Peru and often sends off a large white flower in the shape of an apple during the growing season. A lover of dry, hot air, this plant will store water in its fleshy green trunk, so best to forget this plant for a month and water thoroughly when you do so as to mimic the torrential downpours of its natural habitat. Just be sure to let the soil drain well - if transplanted into a different vessel, be sure it either has ample drainage or the soil is allowed to dry out very well. While technically safe for pets, Fluffy may find himself with a few scratches if left to explore this plant.
Our 24-36" tall Peruvian apple cactus has been grown by a local Southern Florida nursery that has specialized in cacti, succulents, and dracaenas since 1980.

As with all our suppliers, you can be sure that the plant you're getting is best in class and will last with proper care. With patented new plants, you can tell that this nursery knows what they're doing when it comes to growing plants.
For an overview on how we ship plants to you, see our guide here. All items are shipped from Florida on Mondays or Tuesdays to allow for maximum continuous transit time while avoiding time spent sitting in warehouses, trucks, or other distribution points over the weekend. Depending on your location and the weather conditions across the country, we may be forced to hold on shipping until conditions improve as we have had items freeze while sitting in Chicago for four days and get delayed due to heavy holiday volume (Mother's Day, Christmas, etc.). We will make every attempt to ship your item promptly on the very next Monday or Tuesday given that there are no anomalies in shipping conditions.
Items received in a damaged condition will be refunded immediately as we investigate the cause of the issue with the shipper. Returns will not be accepted, please dispose of any unusable items after they have been refunded.
