Federica's survival guide

In He-taly we no do thiz

Federica is Italian, born and raised, and she’ll never let you forget it. There is no topic you can mention that she won’t think is better in “he-taly”. You could be talking about food and she’d say “aye no, in he-taly ze food iz huh-mazing, ze pasta, ze tomay-to, iz ze best”. One of her co-workers mentioned visiting London and Toronto but was quickly told “there iz no flay-vah in theez cee-tees, Milan is full of fush-on and style, and ze vatican in Rome aye come ornn!” It’s not that Federica looks down on other cities, not at all, she’s well travelled and enjoys different cultures. But *sighs in Italian* nothing beats “he-taly” you see.

What makes Federica so special

The Hildewinteria aureispina cristata (Cleistocactus) requires full sun or half shade (preferably Italian sunshine because “eets ze best, no?!”) Federica can be placed in a container with a well drained soil mix and water her generously during the summer. Of course, don’t forget to allow her to fully dry before watering again. During the winter months she should be kept rather dry unless you want to be insulted in Italian! Since she’s a rapid grower, she’ll need plenty of space for her roots and repotting should be done every other year or when she has outgrown her pot.
