Description

DETAILS_
Potted into a satin black ceramic pot with drainage hole/s measuring 10cm w x 10.5 cm h using a quality cacti-perlite mix.

CARE_
Very well suited to indoors, particularly in the cold months. Indoors this plant will do well in almost any position but to maintain compact shape some light is worthwhile. Can tolerate dryness and last long periods between waterings. When you do water, water deeply so that the water drips through the drainage hole then leave until fully dry, water a bit more in warm weather. Fertiliser at half recommended or less in spring growing season. Winter indoors as sensitive to the cold. Or keep dry and under cover in winter.
