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.
Native to: Mexico
Hardiness: tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost
Recommended light conditions: full sun
Bloomtime : Spring
Bloom Color : white/yellow
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.

These little guys are so cute! Can't wait to see it bloom!
So cute! They started blooming the third day I received them.
A few individual nodules fell off during shipping. I still put them in the new pot with the mother and they've already taken root. Great little cute cactus.
The cactus came in great condition. There were actually a few blossoms open and several more have been opening since it's arrived.
All the plants that I received were in good shape and were replanted. I look forward watching them grow.
Beautiful little cacti that has already put out 45 new plants in two weeks!
