Neoporteria multicolor

(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).

Neoporteria multicolor

Endemic to Chile, these plants live among small valleys and traverse to the sea. The species is frequent but not abundant in sclerophyllous forest and thorny scrub on rocky soils, the populations are severely fragmented, and illegal collection is causing a continual decline in the number of mature individuals. Furthermore, land conversion for agriculture and urbanization is degrading the habitat surrounding the species.

It is a summer-growing species. Water regularly in summer, but do not over-water (rot prone). It needs good drainage and very a porous potting soil Keep dry in winter. Feed with a high potassium fertilizer in summer.
Need Full sun to bright shade. Frost Tolerance: -4°C.

Amazing cacti

This little guy was completely healthy and has so much personality. Yeah I know I’m a goofus for saying a plant has personality but you should see it in its little sombrero!

Even Better in Person

This is one of my favorites, the colors are amazing, and looks completely different in different lighting. I’m glad that I ordered it.

Urchin-like

I was immediately drawn to this cactus for its unusual looks. My plants arrived quickly and in amazing packaging. All were potted with a gravel topper, and I was able to open and unwrap each one in my home office with little spillage of gravel or soil. It has been watered twice and given morning sun. I'll be moving it to afternoon sun to see if I can darken up some of the green areas, but overall this is a happy, healthy cactus. I will be ordering from Planet Desert again!

Very cool cactus

Order packing was impeccable. Gravel in original pot sufficient for larger re-pot. Cactus needles provide a dense mass around the surface are fine and curved like a surgical needle. Very cool!
