Just one look at this cactus will make you want to add it to your unique plant family. Requiring little to no effort on your part to thrive for a long time, this buddy won’t mind if you neglect it once in a while. But let’s get to know it better first, shall we?


Espostoa lanata, commonly known as the Peruvian old man cactus, is a member of the Cactaceae family of plants. As the name suggests the native habitat of this interesting plant ranges from southern Ecuador to northern Peru.


This cactus grows mostly on the west slopes of the Andes mountains. This being said, the Peruvian old man cactus will grow and look fabulous in environmental conditions that are somewhat similar to those from its origins, but it will also thrive on your desk or on a sunny windowsill.
