Myrtillocactus Geometrizans makes for a beautiful houseplant. We recommend providing strong direct light through a window and allowing the soil to dry out entirely between waterings. Myrtillocactus prefer a fast draining soil that dos not retain moisture for too long.
Myrtillocactus Geometrizans grow quite well outdoors. We recommend providing filtered sun for your cactus as the tissue can be sensitive to receiving too much direct sunlight. However, tropical and sub-tropical climates allow Myrtillocactus to be grown in full sun. If you happen to live in a drier climate that does dip below freezing, you will want to bring your cactus inside until the following season.
