Stenocactus ssp

Regular price
Commonly referred to as the “brain cactus”, stenocacti are known for numerous wavy ribs.  One of the easiest cacti to grow, they’ll produce white and pink flowers in the Spring.


Like most xerophytes from Mexico, this barrel cactus grows best in a high-mineral mix and requires infrequent watering.
This plant thrives in light shade although it can be acclimated to full sun. 
Overwatering can cause the plant to split or rot!
