Gymnocalycium is a genus of cactus that is popular among collectors and plant enthusiasts. They range in colour and variegation and are chosen at random from our stock. Please view the photos to see a representation of variation in stock. Here are some general care tips for keeping your Gymnocalycium cactus healthy:

  1. Light: Gymnocalycium cacti prefer bright, indirect light. Place your cactus near a window that receives plenty of sunlight, but avoid direct sunlight, as it can burn the plant.

  2. Watering: Water your Gymnocalycium cactus sparingly. Wait until the soil has completely dried out before watering it again. During the winter months, the cactus will require even less water.

  3. Soil: Plant your Gymnocalycium cactus in well-draining soil, such as a cactus or succulent mix. The soil should be porous and not retain water.

  4. Temperature: Gymnocalycium cacti prefer warm temperatures between 60-85°F (15-29°C). Protect your cactus from extreme temperatures, such as frost or heat waves.

  5. Humidity: Gymnocalycium cacti prefer low humidity environments. Avoid placing the plant in a location that is prone to high humidity, such as a bathroom.

  6. Fertilizer: Fertilize your Gymnocalycium cactus during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced fertilizer. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for application rates.

  7. Repotting: Repot your Gymnocalycium cactus every 2-3 years, or when it outgrows its current pot. Use a slightly larger pot and fresh soil.

  8. Pests: Watch for common cactus pests such as mealybugs, spider mites, and scale insects. If you notice any signs of pest infestation, treat the plant with an appropriate insecticide.

With proper care, your Gymnocalycium cactus should thrive and grow into a healthy, beautiful plant.
