Excellent service and good quality plants. Items were dispatched very quickly, packaged well, and with good communication throughout. So far the plants look great and seem to be adjusting to their new home well.Can't fault at all, would recommend and will definitely be using again.

I usually don’t write reviewsI usually don’t write reviews, but this one was owed. Before purchasing my gorgeous Bird of Paradise I contacted the Company and got in touch with Cliah who went above and beyond to accommodate my request. Needless to say I received the plant in one day and is absolutely delightful. A very well deserved 5 start to them!

My Devil's Ivy plant arrived within a couple of days, very well packaged and totally healthy. Absolutely love it and the macrame hanger I ordered at the same time. Also, I made an email enquiry to oxy-plants and had the loveliest response. Such a positive experience, I strongly recommend this company for its efficiency and value for money.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.
