Discover the joys of growing Pincushion Cactus! Perfect for beginners and seasoned gardeners alike, this drought-tolerant plant from the United States adds charm to any succulent garden.

Provide your Pincushion Cactus with intense light and a dry environment. Thriving in both indoor and outdoor settings, ensure it gets about four hours of bright light daily for optimal growth.

Ideal Growing Conditions

Use a well-draining, sandy soil mix, ideal for these desert natives. Water once a week during the growing season, allowing soil to dry out between waterings to prevent root rot.

Soil and Watering Needs

Keep your Pincushion Cactus in 50°F to 75°F temperatures. Fertilize bi-weekly during spring and fall with a cactus-specific fertilizer for healthy growth and vibrant blooms.

Temperature & Fertilization
