- THE COMPUTER CACTUS
This plant has been the subject of recent research in Switzerland
and has been found to be beneficial in reducing the amount of harmful
radiation and static electricity produced by TV and computer VDU screens.
It has been featured in a number of press articles on the subject of
plants which are useful as “green cleaners” in office environments and
large numbers of plants of this species have been sold by us for this
purpose, although they are quite decorative in their own right. Most
customers find that one cactus per VDU screen appears to be satisfactory,
and at a much lower cost than manufactured products which claim to do
the same job.
CULTIVATION : - CEREUS PERUVIANUS is easy to cultivate and can be grown
as a pot plant in a bright or semi-shaded position, in a window or even
under artificial fluorescent lights. It should be grown in a porous
compost such as 3 parts peat/coir potting compost to 1 part sand/grit.
Plants should be watered about once a week all year round - slightly
less in the winter. A minimum temperature of 48F (6 C) is advisable.
