This is Lord Prickle, he is truly the boss of all Cacti. Just look at him (love heart eyes). We call him the lockdown cactus because boyyyy he's been snacking!!! Our favourite thing about him is how chunky he is and his spikes are pretty small meaning he doesn't prick as much as some other Cacti.
Medium Height (including nursery pot) 60-70cm; pot diameter 21cm.
LIGHTING FOR YOUR CACTUS
Lord Prickle likes sunlight, he needs to be in a bright place and can take full sun.
WATERING YOUR CACTUS PLANT
Unlike most Cacti,
Lord Prickle does not handle long periods of drought well. Make sure you're letting his soil fully dry out between watering.
Lord Prickle might need weekly watering during the summer. Still use the finger test to make sure you do not overwater. Houseplant watering guide
HUMIDITY FOR YOUR CACTUS PLANT
Lord Prickle will tolerate normal room humidity.
WHAT FERTILISER SHOULD I USE FOR MY CACTUS
Lord Prickle doesn't really need fertiliser. If you're looking for the best results fertilise in the summer once a month when watering.
REPOTTING YOUR CACTUS
You shouldn't have to repot
Lord Prickle for a good few years. For soil, a well drained potting soil or cactus mix soil is perfect.
