Howdy partner, if you are looking for the perfect cartoon style cactus then I'm the one for you. Just watch out for my prickly spines!
The Stem Pledge
To see me at my best
I love bright direct sunshine, water me every few weeks in summer and less frequently in winter.
Height is measured from the bottom of the plastic nursery pot (please allow a +/-10% variance). Diameter is the nursery pot diameter, so to get a pot that fits, the pot diameter should be bigger.
How to look after me
I love sun - give me as much as possible!
Give me a drink every week or so in summer and just occasionally over the cooler months.
Feed me once in spring and once in summer.
You don't need to give me any extra humidity as I like it dry.
Dust me every month or so using a soft brush to open up my pores.
Things to look out for
Falling overDue to shallow roots and their height they can be prone to falling over.
White sapThis sap can leak out if the exterior is punctured, be careful as it is toxic.
ToxicityThe white sap is highly toxic.
