The flowers on the Aura Cactus are equally as spectacular as the magnificent arching branches of this cactus. Bright orange to salmon-pink coloured flowers open up to about 5cm in width the outter petals bent backwards with the shorter inner petals standing upright next to exerted stamens.

This cactus also produces barrel shaped inedible fruits about 1cm long that ripen to red-green in colour.

This succulent is native to Bolivia, which is known for it’s humid tropical habitats. This climate can be replicated in most Australian gardens by allowing this plant to dry out between deep watering and keeping drier in the winter.

Preparation instructions are included in every order which are specific to the plants that you have ordered, and usually only take a few days to recover.
