Couldn't fault their service or plant quality. I live in Northern Ireland and it is extremely difficult at the moment to have a plant delivered it came in good time and plant was in excellent condition will use them again. I got a few peace lilies for an addition to my aquarium set up and doing great! Thanks

Lovely plants in really nice pots. Well packaged and delivered. Even received a phone call from John to say that he thought my pot choice would be too big and would sub a smaller size when the order was sent out, he was right.

I ordered a Monstera a great specimen arrived a few days later. I am very happy with it. Only problem is the package was a bit tight and some leaves were damaged but I guess this is inevitable.

Had a really good experience, my delivery was a bit delayed due to waiting for stock of Bird of Paradise which didn’t time well for me going away. On contacting the team John was very responsive and accommodating with arranging delivery for when I was back instead. Plants were packaged very well, arrived in perfect condition and all super healthy. Would recommend Oxy Plants and would purchase from them again in the future!

I ordered the 3 plant bundle. John contacted me as there was an issue getting hold of the blue pots so I chose a different colour. Plants arrived promptly, although one had a damaged pot. John sent a replacement along with a bag of compost so I could repot it. Great communication, good value. Highly recommended.

How To Care For Cathedral Cactus

Be sure to water this cactus plant once a month, or when he top half of the soil feels dry. If you’re struggling to gauge this, you can always use the “thumb trick”. Pop your thumb into the soil to see if it is dry, or moist.

Be sure to place your cactus plant in a spot with plenty of sun and and warmth. A spot near a living room or bedroom window would be perfect.

There’s no need to worry about humidity with this succulent. If you’re misting your other houseplants, it’s best to give this one a miss!

This African cactus plant loves a well-draining, loamy soil. Try to keep your soil a neutral pH as well. Have you seen our brand new soil substrates? We recommend using vermiculite in this potting mix.

Did you know your cactus may even flower? If you want this to happen, it’s always helpful to use a little fertiliser during the growing season. Make sure you invest in some Miracle-Gro Succulent Plantfood, or cactus potting mix.

If using fertiliser is new to you, read our “How to Fertilise Your Houseplant” page!

These cactus plants are naturally resistant to most pests and bugs. However, watch out for spider mites and mealybugs. If your plant comes into contact with any, use some of our natural neem oil to treat. If you think your plant is suffering from Pests and Infections, then take a look at our pests and diseases guide!

Consider repotting your African Cactus Plant once a year. Every time you do it, it’s wise to buy a plant pot 1-2 cm’s larger. This should help to give some growing room. If you’re at a loose end and wondering how to repot, then take a look at our repotting guide. It has all the information you’ll need!

Care for your Cathedral Cactus with these

About Cathedral Cactus

Looking to bring a desert twist into your home? The Cathedral Cactus, sometimes called “Euphorbia Trigona”, is a plant native to the deserts of Central Africa. In more recent years, the Cathedral Cactus has found itself a new home sitting on windowsills and in greenhouses all across the UK! If you’re looking for a cactus plant without much threat of sharp, and prickly spines, then you should definitely consider one of these Cathedral Cactus Plants.

Believe it or not, the Cathedral Cactus is remarkably similar to the African Milk Tree. The main difference between the two is stem colour. Whilst the African Milk Tree can sometimes produce reddish looking stems, the Cathedral Cactus is a more traditional-looking green.

Like many cacti species, the Cathedral Cactus is one of the hardiest plants on earth. This plant’s needle-like thorns and triangular ridges are designed to funnel water down to its roots, making it a desert survival specialist! It even stores water in its thick, green stem. With this in mind, the Cathedral Cactus is definitely one of our easy-care houseplants. It’ll make a perfect gift for beginner gardeners and the not so green-fingered. If it can manage in the desert, it’ll love your home!

If you’re wondering how to care for your Cathedral Cactus, it’s plain and simple! Place your cactus in the sunniest spot you have in the house. A south-facing window would be perfect. Water this plant as little as possible (to avoid over-watering) and add a little bit of cactus fertiliser during the growing season. It may even bloom white flowers if you’re lucky!

Is this product not for you? Not to worry! Take a look at our (almost) Unkillable plants and our Best Large Houseplants pages. We also sell cheap houseplants under £20 as well!

Caution: the cathedral cactus is a cactus and may have spiky thorns. It is also toxic to pets and humans (contains latex). As such, it may be unsuitable for a home with adventurous toddlers and furry friends!

Please note: this plant comes in a plastic nursery pot. Browse our entire range of plant pots to add that extra charm and character to your home.
