Great texture, coppery hook spines have a fluffy coating of white, cottony hair that has unique aesthetic merit. Soft pink flowers.

PLANT PERSONALITY_ Soft, fluffy and feminine.  Powder puff facade but mess with her and you’re likely to come off second best in the nicest possible way.  Easy care and very pretty in flower.



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

This cactus loves being in a sheltered spot outdoors in the warm months but is not frost hardy, so bring indoors for winter and place in a sunny, bright spot so that you cactus keeps its shape. No need to water during this time as it is dormant in winter. Powder Puff cacti grow easily and produce many offsets that can be removed gently and replanted into coarse, gritty potting mix or leave as is to cluster and multiply. A ring of hot pink flowers crowns each stem in Spring. Cactus need bright sunlight, excellent drainage, and infrequent watering to prevent rot (none in winter). Underwater than overwater this one. Fertilise at 1/4 strength of recommended dosage.
