Moriarty, a Echinocereus Morricalii Cactus, is a slow-growing cactus native to Mexico.
As he grows in the wild, it forms a small cluster of columnar stems that shrink in winter in response to a the lack of water.
Believe it or not, when he's happy, he might even show bright pink-purple flowers with bright yellow centres.

Moriarty prefers bright light and once established will even tolerate direct sun.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
