We love a weird cacti, and these guys fit that brief perfectly. They are made up of many globular forms stacked on top of each other and can develop long, thin spines which look like little strips of curled paper. Weird, right?
Each Tephrocactus in unique in shape, form and number of segments.
Due to the rigid nature of these larger cacti, they are likely to have some callouses or old battle scars - we think this adds to their character!
Light: Bright indirect light will promote the best growth. Older plants can withstand direct sunlight.
Water: Only water once the soil is completely dry then give a heavy water.
Food: Not a requirement but if you choose to; use a light cacti fertiliser.
Humidity: Will thrive in a normal home humidity but will also tolerate dry air.
I received the Tephrocactus Articulatus cactus (with others) today. Very well packaged. Arrived safely with no damage. Lovely specimen. Can recommend !
