Thimble Cactus is a favorite at Succy Crafts. This miniature cactus grows into big clusters that look like pin cushions because of their small white spines that completely cover them. This cactus will add texture to any succulent arrangement or can be potted all on its own. The clusters can easily be separated and made into new mother plants to share with plant loving friends and family.

Watering Needs Indoors: Instead of giving your succulents gradual sips of water throughout the week, give them a good soaking, to the point where water runs out the drainage holes at the bottom of the pot. Be sure to empty the water that runs into the saucer, succulents do not like to sit in water. Then let the soil dry out completely before watering again.
Watering needs Outdoors: In the Summer water your succulents every two weeks, by soaking them and letting them dry before watering again. In the Winter water your succulents once a month.

I bought the small cacitus
Wish it was bigger but overall it was what was advertised. I guess I’ll just have to have some patients & Waite for it to grow.
Nicely packaged and healthy
All plants arrived safe and beautiful!
This Thimble cactus was for my momma who loves to sew. It is living in her sewing room window!
