Cactus Moon Grafted

300.00

Its scientific name is Gymnocalycium Mihanovichii and is also known as ‘Ruby ball Cactus’

Pronounced as Gymno-cali-si-um.

This vibrant little Cactus will lighten up your room, desk and probably your mood too. It’s a green upright cactus with a bright ball like structure on top, which is either in shades of pink, red or yellow.

The moon cactus is a special plant because what you see is not a single plant. It’s actually two cacti combined into one!  The bright top is mistaken for a flower often, but it is actually another cactus which doesn’t produce green pigment.

This plant is a result of human’s creativity produced by grafting two different cacti together.

Water: Moon grafted cactus are drought tolerant and are to be watered twice a month during summer and once every month at other times of the year. Water the plant if you find the soil dry out. Make sure you do not overwater the plant.

Soil: This plant prefers alkaline to neutral soil. However, the soil needs to drain well, as residual moisture or puddling can cause the plant to rot.
