Recommended Care instructions:


Light - Demands full light growing for most of the year, except during the winter cycle. For the plant's health, light should be reduced to partial sun during this time.


Water - It should be given water on a regular basis during its first season in a new pot. This will help it to create a strong root system. The soil should be kept moist, but not soggy. After the first season, more sporadic watering is required. During the winter cycle, the cactus should not be watered at all, with watering to resume in the early spring.


Temperature - This cactus enjoys temperatures ranging from 70-100°F (21-37°C), but demands cooler temperatures during the winter months. Starting in the late fall, this cactus should be kept between 50-65°F (10-18°C), and away from central heating vents. The cooler spell is demanded over the course of the entire winter, during which time the segments of cactus will turn a light gray color. Failure to provide these controlled winter conditions will result in plant death the following spring.


Soil: These succulents require very well draining soil. A mix of 1:1 Cactus soil and perlite will be ideal. If planting in a container
