About Clive

Well, just look at him. What a magnificent show off. Clive the spiralled cereus cactus is a guy with a lot of personality. His twisted stem makes him look like something out of a sci-fi movie, though he's more commonly found in California desert than alien planets (that we know of).

He's a really easy going guy, other than a little water, you can just sit him in a nice well-lit spot and let him get twisted.

Clive the Spiraled Cactus likes...

Dry soil
Clive doesn't drink much. Just water him when the top 2 inches of his soil is dry. In winter, every few months will do.

Lots of sun
He'll cheerfully live in a spot that gets lots of natural light and is happy with some direct sun during the day.
