Tephrocactus articulatus var. papyracanthus

Forming a croquembouche of pine-cone shaped segments, this little cactus may need a little structural help to reach heights over 30cm. Unique large twirling paper like ribbons pertrude from the cactus body instead of spines, making in a distinctly decorative and unpredictable specimen. 

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 fresh cacti & Succulent compost. 

Feed

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