Cereus Peruvianus is a columnar cactus endemic to the Andes Mountains. We recommend providing strong direct light for you cactus indoors and a big drink every 2-3 weeks. The ribs of your cactus will feel thin and flexible when it is ready for a drink.
Cereus Peruvianus 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 C. Peruvianus 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.
