Gardenerd's Cactus 'Blue Myrtle' x 1 Sown
Plant: Whortleberry cactus (Myrtillocactus geometrizans) |
Thanks Greerish for id. It needs bright, bright light but it cannot withstand zone 8 full sun without scourching so it sits under the awning on the south side of the house where it gets full light but not direct sun and it’s water when completely dry.
