Melocactus violaceus

  • Barrel-shaped cactus whose inconspicuous flowers are produced in a fuzzy growth atop the stem, called a "cephalium".
  • Short, stiff spines.
  • Dwarf growth habit; ideal for a sunny windowsill.

Care:

  • Light: As much direct sun as possible (west or south window).
  • Water: Water when the soil has completely dried out in spring and summer. In winter, water lightly only if the stems begin to shrivel.
  • Fertilizer: Use Schultz Cactus Food (2-7-7) up to twice monthly in spring and summer.
  • Other tips: Grows best in an undersized pot. Use sharply-drained potting mix; we recommend Pro-Mix Cactus & Succulent Mix with extra perlite and small Orchiata added. This plant rots very easily when overwatered.

*Please note we do not ship live plants. All plants must be picked up in-store or curbside.
