Brasilicactus Graessneri is one of the fastest growing, medium sized cactus with a large number of brown-yellow radial spines that flowers at the end of winter season
An easy to grow cactus under tropical conditions, this species displays a healthy growth and easy flowering when given the best conditions. If kept outside it requires filtered sunlight or afternoon shade as too much of sun can be harmful to the plant. During winters, they become wet sensitive and need to kept dry
It is an excellent plant for garden rockery settings, desert type landscapes, patios and botanical gardens
For watering cacti, the golden rule is to make sure the soil is completely dry before watering! This will stop the roots from rotting. It is advised to always use a pot with a drainage hole so that excess water can get drained out. If kept in a sunny area, you will need to water it once every week. If it is in a semi shaded or filtered light area, you might need to water it once in 2 weeks.
Cacti like soil that is well aerated and fast draining. You can fertilise the cactus in the summer months when it is in its growing season. During the winters it is best to cut back on any fertiliser and let the plant rest.
