Care Tips

Light

  • Demands full light growing for most of the year, except during the winter cycle
  • Acclimate to direct sunlight slowly to prevent scorching
  • A southern exposure is perfect in the winter

 

Water

  • Water on a regular basis during its first season in a new pot
  • keep the soil moist, but not soggy
  • During the winter cycle, the cactus should not be watered at all, with watering to resume in the early spring

 

Soil

  • Like most cacti, this specimen demands sandy soil-bases that drain easily
  • It is usually happy with the pre-packaged cactus soil found in common hardware stores
  • To increase drainage for a picky plant, mix in a 1:1 ratio of perlite or bark

 

Fertilizer

  • Monthly feeding of low nitrogen fertilizer
  • Fertilization should stop one month before the planned winter cycle for the plant’s health
  • Any organic cactus fertilizer can be used 

 

Repotting 

  • Re-potting should take place in the summer, after the year’s bloom has finished
  • Remember to water the plant regularly to promote the growth of a healthy root system during its first year in the new pot

 

Propagation 

  • Any fully grown pad from this cactus may be broken off cleanly in the early summer and re-potted for propagation purposes
  • Cuttings work best when grouped in threes or more, and should be buried an inch deep in the soil
  • Remember to water regularly to promote the growth of a healthy root system in the first year after propagation
