    Description

Azureocereus imperator - The Blue Cereus

This listing is for a pack of 25 seeds.

Also known as Browningia hertlingiana, this is a beautiful blue skinned column cactus with striking spines which originates from Peru at altitudes of 1800 and 2000 metres

It is one of the tree like cactus, growing to 5 - 6 metres tall, from a trunk of around 1 metre tall.  The branching stems are the ones that will flower, so an unbranched specimen is not likely to flower.

Each stem has up to 18 ribs that bear golden brown spines. The older plants produce 5 cm funnel-shaped white flowers annually which are open at night and close by the morning and have a purple or pink tint to them. These usually grow during April, May, and June in the northern hemisphere. These are followed by fruit about the size of a tennis ball, which are dry and full of seeds.  It is possible to get this cactus to flower in cultivation if it is well grown, although this will still take 7 years or more to get it to this point.  It is usually grown for its strikingly coloured stems.

Young plants require a degree of shade and protection from the sun as they normally develop in the shade of another plant until they push through the cover or the shade plant dies (as in the case of a mature cactus).  This need should be observed even in the higher latitudes to protect seedlings from becoming scorched and stunted.

Easy to germinate and grow on, full instructions can be found by going to my 'ME' page and following the links there.
