Hamatocactus setispinus

(This plant comes in a 3.5 inch pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

A common name includes Hedgehog cactus.

Flower: Yellow, with a deep red center.

Blooming season: Summer to Fall.

Cultivation and propagation: This species is easy and well worth growing. It requires little care once they have reached a nice flowering size. Thelocactus setispinus is suited for any rich, well-drained soil in full sun throughout the year (but does better with some light shade in the summer).

This plant needs plenty of water (indicatively to about once a week). Avoid wetting the bodies of these plants while they are in sunlight. A wet cactus in the sunlight can cause sun burning which can lead to scars or even fungal infections and death.

Frost tolerance: In winter keep completely dry at 5°C this usually aids in maintaining a healthier plant, but it is hardy as less as -12 to -7°C depending on the origin.

Hurry up Bloomtime!

This was an accidental double order of the same plant from earlier, but now I cannot wait for them to show me their beautiful blooms. The plant is not showy, but I imagine the flowers will be gorgeous!

Great looking healthy plant!

I got this to replace a large clump of H. setispinus that unfortunately had succumbed to a nasty impossible to defeat mealy bug infestation. It is nice to get started again knowing what this will grow into. This like the other plants I purchased arrived in excellent shape and super well packed.
