      Prickly but pure

      Loves direct or filtered sunlight

      Every 3-4 weeks, make sure the top 1.3cm of soil is dry between watering. 

      Loves room temperature 

      Not toxic or harmful to humans or pets.

A little more..

     Can tolerate air conditioning.

     Loves dry and well drained soil, add sand to improve the drainage.
