The peculiar and rare Thimble Cactus (Mammillaria Gracilis Fragilis) is made up of cute little cactus balls, all bunched together. The green cactus balls and white spines have striking color next to the beautiful yellow and orange blossoms that come out during blooming season. As they get older, Thumble Cacti can grow longer spines at the top. They usually grow up to around 5 to 6 inches, so they'll be perfect for your indoor succulent collection. When one of the pieces breaks off, they can usually be propagated into a whole new plant.
The Thimble Cactus loves potting soil that drains very quickly and filtered sun to light shade, so protect it from hot mid-day sun. From Spring until the end of summer, you can water them regularly when the soil dries, but during the winter they don't need any water at all unless you notice the top-most cactus balls drooping.
The Thimble Cactus kit comes with a 4 inch cube pot in matte black or matte white, 1 lb of Juicykits cactus mix, 1/2 lb of jet black lava rock, and a cute little note card. Supplies are limited, so don't wait to order.
