Cement planters are 10cm w x 10cm h, potted using a quality potting-perlite mix.

During Spring and Summer, water deeply then allow to dry out between waterings. Keep the soil dry during late Autumn and winter when this cacti needs to “rest” for a few months in a sheltered, warm spot. This dormant period is necessary for it to bloom well.  Position in a partial shade to full sun position outdoors or bright light indoors. Liquid feed at 1/4 to 1/2 strength of other plants during the growing season.
