Care Tips


  • Bright, filtered light and ample airflow



  • Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch
  • Never let your succulents sit in water
  • Do NOT water on the leaves
  • If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes
  • Water more often if you live in a hot area
  • Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold or wet for long
  • Protect from frost to prevent scarring



  • Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended
  • It is usually happy with the pre-packaged cactus soil found in common hardware stores
  • To increase drainage for a picky plant, mix in a 1:1 ratio of perlite or bark



  • Monthly feeding of low nitrogen fertilizer
  • Fertilization should stop one month before the planned winter cycle for the plant’s health
  • Any organic cactus fertilizer can be used 



  • Re-potting should take place in the summer, after the year’s bloom has finished
  • Remember to water the plant regularly to promote the growth of a healthy root system during its first year in the new pot



  • Any fully grown pad from this cactus may be broken off cleanly in the early summer and re-potted for propagation purposes
  • Cuttings work best when grouped in threes or more, and should be buried an inch deep in the soil
  • Remember to water regularly to promote the growth of a healthy root system in the first year after propagation
