All the plant gossip, through the grapevine. Pun intended
Fertilizer/ feed for the plant:Feed your cactus during its growing season, from spring to fall, with a water soluble fertiliser diluted to half its strength with each watering.
Repotting : The cactus is a fuss-free plant that likes to be left alone and can grow in the same pot for years. Repot only when the growth seems stunted, or refresh soil every year for better growth.
Propogation : The apple cactus can be easily propagated through stem cuttings when the plant is mature and established.
1. How to take care of the Apple cactus?
Keep this cactus on the drier ide of watering and give it an extremely well-draining potting media. This plant loves to stay humid during its growing months of spring and summer, so keep the roots moderately dry and keep it out of AC drafts. Give it a spot with at least 3-4 hours of sun or extremely bright indirect light through the day.
2. Why is my Cereus repandus going black?
Blackening of any succulent is a sign of rot due to overwatering. Touch and feel the blackening area, if its soft and mushy to touch, take stem cutting from the top healthy portion and try propagating the plant in a fresh potting mix.
3. How often should I water my cactus?
Watering your cactus depends entirely on how much light it is getting. Overwatering is the biggest killer of these plants. Water only when the soil is completely dry, this plant loves to stay on the drier side. Do a finger dip test for dryness and if completely dry wait for a day or two more before watering.
Light Requirements :The Cereus Repandus loves a bright spot with partial sunlight for at least a few hours in a day. East or west facing corners, tables that get sun, or windowsills are a great choice.
Locations :Display your cacti on table tops or shelves to bring an architectural angle to the décor. It grows in a compact fashion, making it excellent for tight spaces.
Styling/decor tip :The Cereus Repandus is a beautiful succulent with distinctly masculine vibes. Grow it in monochrome pots that are wide/flat in structure to further elevate the columnar growing pattern of this cactus. Cover the topsoil with white gravel to offset its beautiful blue-green colour and display it on ide tables or workstation. They also look great in succulent arrangements and add height to the setup.

Just like any other plant, the Cereus Repandus can grow to several feet in the wild, but indoor it will only grow as big as the pot allows it to grow. The growth can be successfully arrested to a tabletop variety of several inches. With proper care and a succession of larger pot sizes it can grow to be 5-6 feet tall indoors over years.
Under ideal conditions, the plant is a fast grower and can grow several inches in it growing season.
While the plant is non-toxic to both humans and animals, it is not consumed in this part of the world. However, its fruits called the Peruvian Apples are a delicacy in South America.
