This blue-green skinned columnar cactus sports star-shaped clusters of long spines, an easy potted plant that can be grown with light from a bright window. Water regularly during the growing season, but water very infrequently through the winter. Protect from frost. Inoculate cactus mix with soil taken from around other growing cacti, and make sure the mix is extremely coarse (incorporate coarse, sharp gravel/pumice) in order to support sprouting seeds as they elongate and germinate.
