Tephrocactus aoracanthus var. peadiophilus

This glorious Tephrocactus is all about the spines. Reaching to possible lengths of 30cm, it can boast the longest spines in the whole genus. Although appearing paper-like and almost flimsy, these randomised spines are sharp and designed to keep all at bay. 

Watering

In summer water thoroughly only when 100% of the soil has dried out. A/W allow soil to dry 100% - water sparingly (every two months). Spring gradually increase watering - depending on temp and light exposure. 

Light requirements

Full sun. 

Repotting

Repot every 2-3 years using cacti & succulent compost, with added drainage such as pumice and perlite.

Feed

Use a cactus feed from March - November every other time you water.
