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.

seems to be good. Will keep you posted. My last one you sent me died in 4 days!
This little guy is doing very well.
Came in packed nicely. The fun begins to watch it grow.
My little cactus is beautiful. I placed it in a dish among other specimens.
Wonderful company. Don't hesitate to order from this company!
It was a little smaller than I thought, however, I am not disappointed at all! It was packaged so well with cotton on top taped on. Very great looking!!
