Cement planters are 10cm w x 10.5cm h using a quality compost-perlite-sand mix that is top dressed with small river pebbles.

Water this one rarely. Prone to rot if over watered. Cease watering in winter and seldom in cooler months. Needs a sunny spot indoors. Cacti are generally winter dormant so keep dry and warm in winter in a bright, warm spot in a window or sheltered outdoors in a warm bright spot, if at all. Lightly fertilizer (1/4 to 1/2 strength of normal plants) during the spring-summer growing season for best results.
