Thelocactus Hexaedrophorus is a unique succulent, known for its flat stems and beautiful rosette.

The plant is usually solitary and can reach up to 8 cm in height and 15 cm in diameter. The stem is globose, fleshy, barrel-shaped, arranged in 8-13 ribs made of fat, rounded tubercles covered with circular and hairy areoles. The areoles are woolly and bear 4-6 erect, whitish to reddish radial spines, up to 2 cm long. Blooming occurs in late spring early summer, and blossom are borne at the apex of the stem. The showy ephemeral flowers are funnel-shaped, white to pink with yellow stamens. Fruits are spherical, green to dark red and covered with scales.


Thelocactus species like most cacti they're drought tolerant and need very little care and attention to grow well . Plenty of sunshine will keep this cacti more than happy. Provide bright, even light to encourage tight growth and flowering. Some shade during a hot summers day can be helpful to prevent sunburn.

Allow the soil mix to become nearly dry between watering, but then water thoroughly. Suspend watering in the winter, but mist occasionally. Not enough sunlight and over-watering are common mistakes.

Use pot with good drainage and a very porous potting media.

Feed every 4 weeks with a high potassium fertilizer during summer

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.
