Description

Bright pink giant semi cactus that produces flowers that will easily reach 25 cm across when grown well. The plants themselves will grow to about 1.5 m so it is important to make sure they are well staked and tied.  A good variety for general garden display as the flowers are more weather tolerant than most Giant flowered types.

For the best size flowers remove the growing point of the plant when 3-4 pairs of leaves have developed and thin resulting side shoots down to allow only 3-4 flowering stems to develop. Once the terminal bud has developed and is about the size of a 10p piece 3-4 pairs of the side buds can be removed to further maximise flower size. If you are growing solely for garden display, then all flowers can be allowed to develop but resulting flowers will be smaller. Dead head regularly.
