Houseplant & Indoor Plant Care

Blue Torch Cactus Care Guide

These magnificent Blue Torch Cacti are a breeze to care for, and perfectly pet safe except for their prickly spines. To keep them happy and healthy, place them in a warm comfortable spot with plenty of bright/indirect sunlight, average humidities, and temperatures ranging from 15 degrees Celsius up to 30 degrees Celsius. A great rule of thumb for these cacti is to water them thoroughly once the first few inches of soil have dried, ideally using rainwater or distilled water where possible.

    Blue Torch Cactus ordered with other items

    Good condition and nicely packaged

    The plants were very well packed, which is just as well as the delivery driver does not know what 'this way up' means. They were all in good condition with just 2 damaged 'tails' on the mousetails plant, which is much better than most online plants I have had delivered. The plants are all in good condition, although the soil was very dry. I was a bit disappointed with the size of the plants. I am not sure how you measure the height of the plants, but one I ordered was meant to be 20 - 30 cms, so I was expecting quite a tall plant. The only way it could be considered as anywhere near 20 - 30 cms is if you include the pot too, which as the pot is 10 cm tall and the total including the pot is only 21 cms, seems a little 'off' for a plant at £25 I believe is a little steep. Same goes for the other plants - 2 at 10 - 20 cms that are not near the 10 cm minimum unless the pot is included. I did hunt through the web page to try to find out how you measure the height, but could not find anything that tells you. Perhaps it needs to be made a lot clearer how you measure the height, as receiving a plant where the plant itself only measures 11 cm when you expected a plant at 20 - 30 cms, isn't right.

    Perfectly packaged

    Perfectly packaged, no damage whatsoever. I waited a few days before repotting as suggested. They’re all now very happy indoors until the Spring when they can go out into the glasshouse to enjoy the sun and hopefully flower!

    The plants were good quality and packaged well, though the soil did come out of one pots a bit. It states if you order later on Thursday, which I did, the plants would be dispatched on the Monday. Mine arrived on the Monday, which I was not expecting so that means the plants must have been with the delivery company over the weekend. Luckily no damage done.

    Site is simple and easy to use, I was looking for a specific cactus and I found it straight away. Delivery was fast and my cactus came packaged really really well. They also leave you a print out with a care guide in the parcel so that’s a nice touch. Will definitely be buying from here again!
