Monkey Tail Cactus - Yellow
The Golden Monkey Tail Cactus (Cleistocactus winteri) is a collectable hanging plant with soft "hairy" stems that (you guessed it!) resemble monkeys' tails. It is a fast growing cactus with soft stems that grow upright until they are mature/large enough to start hanging down. We have both white and yellow Monkey Tail Cacti available - this listing is for the more common yellow variety which develops salmon coloured flowers.
A hanging basket full of Monkey Tail cacti is a truly high impact look. Grow this plant in a part-shade or full sun position - your plant will get "hairier" with more sun. This is a desert plant, so it wants excellent drainage and a healthy amount neglect. Allow it to dry out between watering and hold back on watering in winter so as to avoid root rot.
The plants we have are in 115mm pots with two stems that are 15-20cm long. You will either receive the same plant in the photo or one of equivalent growth from the same batch.
We deliver our plants locally and interstate, except for Western Australia, Tasmania and the Northern Territory for quarantine reasons. Plants that require shipping are posted on Mondays to minimise the time in transit. All other items will be posted within 2 business days of receiving your order.
