How to keep this plant alive
Find the right spot
We are sure you’ve seen this cactus in a Western movie. Despite his stings, he is very sweet and it is an easy plant to take care of. Put it on a spot with lots of sunlight so it can grow well.
How thirsty is this plant?
Little! This cactus doesn’t need that much water. If you water, do it right. Make sure that the soil gets completely soaked and water again only when the soil is completely dry. In winter you have to water even less. That time of year he can easily go without water for two months.
Did you know…?
- You can take cuttings from this cactus? Cut off a branch and plant it in the ground. That’s it! Free cactus!
- If the cactus is damaged, white juice can be released? This white juice gives an irritation to your skin, so watch out. It is best to wear your gloves if you are going to repot the cactus or if you take cuttings.
