We remove soil when we ship. Succulents are unlike other plants in that there are no issues
with a plant out of soil or kept dry for a week or more. Take them out of the box and put into
a pot with moist soil. As a general rule, plant in a pot twice as big as the root ball.

Regards watering: In winter, wait
a few days so the roots start reaching down for water.
How often you water depends on how quickly your soil dries out. Most important, don't overwater.

We take photos of our plants to show you what they look like. We are not selling the plant in the photo.
Whether your plant has flowers depends on whether it is flowering at that time. A pot may be
one large plant or more than one plant. Plants grow at different paces and different sizes
so if you order 2 plants coming out of the same size pot, they may not be the same size.

Sale plants may require additional freight payment

Oreocereus hendriksenianus densilanatus

Oreocereus hendriksenianus densilanatus, native to Peru and Chile, is a columnar with dense white hair and long golden central spines. Branches from base to form stems to 4" in diameter, and 6' in height. flowers icy carmine peru to chile This "Old man of the Andes" is so called for the long hairs that densely cover the columns. These plants stand on high mountains like snowy sentinels overlooking valleys. It is believed that the white hairs provide protection from the intense ultraviolet light of the higher altitudes. Flowers appear in spring and are somewhat tubular and icy carmine in color. Excellent as landscape or patio plant. In cultivation, Oreocereus requires bright light to produce dense hairs, but, as a former mountain dweller, does not care for extremely high temperatures. Prefers porous cactus soil with adequate drainage. Bright light to full sun with ample airflow. Preferable not to water on overcast days, humid days or cold winter days. Protect from frost.
