Description

Gymnocalcyum kiko is an odd cultivator and can be easily distinguished for its long and wide pointed tubercles along with its monstrously bumped ribs edges. Seems to be a pretty variable plant with several clones.

It grows up to 10cm tall and 8-15cm in diameter. Deep olive green to yellowish- green that colourful purplish/brownish tinge in full sun.

Areoles are upto 10mm large and flowers are pink in colour.

Environment

Best for half shade but grow well in full sun and full shade too (but in full sun turns an uneven brownish red colour).

Water regularly in summer, keep rather dry in winter, but can handle excessive to few water.

This plant is usually found grafted but it proved to groove well and pretty easy on its own roots too.

Landscape Uses
It is an excellent plant for garden rockery settings and desert type landscape.

The easiest to keep alive - Cactus thrive on neglect! Coming from desert climates cactus love sun! However beware of the Indian afternoon sun! Keeping them in extreme heat, especially behind a glass which magnifies the heat can cause the cactus to burn. If you notice the cactus turning brown or yellow on the side facing the sun, try giving it a cooler place to thrive in!

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.
