Planting and care

  • If optimum heat and watering conditions are met, the pincushion cactus may reward you with flowers in spring.

    Pincushion Cactus care

    Pincushion cactus care is very simple and suitable for the beginning gardener. Cactus plants are used to dry conditions and limited fertility. The soil for a pincushion needs to be well drained and gritty. The soil needs to dry out between watering, which is best accomplished with a sandy topsoil. The cactus goes dormant in winter and needs no additional irrigation until spring.
