Neochilenia or Neoporteria cachytaensis


Cultivation and propagation: It is a slow growing but relatively easy to grow species, providing they are kept dry during autumn and winter and rot prone if kept in a non-ventilated place.
Watering needs: Root prone it needs good drainage, watering’s should regular in summer (do not overwater), to keep the plant compact and not become excessively elongated and unnatural in appearance. During the winter quiescent period, or when night temperatures remain below 10° C, it must be strictly kept dry since it is very sensitive to any moisture excesses.

Exposure: Requires strong sun exposure to develop good spinal growth (maximum brightness, sunlight accepted), but tolerate light shade. Some light shadow may be useful in the hottest summer days.
Frost tolerance: Hardy to at least -5°C for a short period but cannot tolerate long standing freezing temperature, and for a healthy cultivation ensure a minimum temperature of 5° C. Assure a good ventilation. USDA Hardiness Zone 9b and 11.
Heat tolerance: Good heat tolerance, but in warmer climates it should be protected from excessive heat and too much sun in summer.
