Gymnocalycium Sp. 'Chin Cactus' + Cement Planter 10cm

BOTANICAL NAME_ Gymnocalycium sp. (native to Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and Brazil)

AKA_ Chin Cactus

FEATURES_ Very attractive compact species growing to 10cm across.  Stunning flowers appear in summer and last for 4-8 weeks. Plants remain solitary but sometimes produce an offset with age. Very slow growing.

FOLKLORE_ Gymnocalycium from the Greek word ‘Gymnos’ meaning naked and Kalyx meaning bud.  Naked calyx refers to the flower buds bearing no hair or spines.



Cement planters are 10cm w x 10cm h using a quality compost-perlite-sand mix that is top dressed with pebbles or natural gravel. We select from a range of different Gymnocalyciums but size and general appearance will be similar to those shown in product images.

Place under protected, partially shaded positions outdoors.  Indoors only in sunny positions otherwise may lose their nice shape and colour.  Flowers will only appear in good light. Cacti prefer to completely dry out between waterings. Water the soil deeply so that water runs through the drainage hole and hits the roots for uptake to stem. Cacti are generally winter dormant so keep dry and warm in winter either inside in a bright, warm spot or sheltered outdoors and water sparingly, if at all, outdoors over winter. Lightly fertilizer (1/4 to 1/2 strength of normal plants) during the spring-summer growing season for best results.
