Espostoa melanostele

24th October 2015

The Peruvian Old Lady cactus growing up to 2,500m in Peru. It makes a tall volumn in habitat, unfortunately I kept mine too dry for a couple of years while I sorted out a suitable location. As a result it has developed a constriction in the body close to the base and it it gets too large it will be unstable. If it grows away well it would probably be more sensible to chop it off and allow it to resprout but I doubt I will have the nerve.
