This guy has long spines, so a prickly customer! You will want to place it in your home with consideration, making sure it’s located out of harms way.
Light: They like bright sun and warm temperatures although they can cope with cooler temperature down to 10 degrees C.
Water: Great news! They need minimal watering. However they do need to be watered and watering them regularly albeit every 4-8 weeks, will encourage growth. Water from the bottom, put it in about 2 inches of water, allow it to soak for 20 mins. Take it out and allow it to drain. They must have drainage...so make sure when you have watered they are not sitting in the excess water! This will avoid root rot!
Toxicity: Pet friendly! However those spines are really fierce.
Pot size: 24cm
