Planting and 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.

Sunlight Soil Water Temperature Fertilizer
Full Sun Well-drained soil Medium 65 to 90 degrees C Apply any organic fertilizer

Caring for Pincushion Cactus

  • If optimum heat and watering conditions are met, the pincushion cactus may reward you with flowers in spring.
  • Enhance the chance of blooming by holding off watering until several weeks into spring.
  • You can also apply a cactus food in early spring to give the plant the nutrients it needs to produce blooms.
