Gymnocalycium mihanovichii 'Hibotan' "Moon Cactus"

Price: $7.75

Sku: 0850125


Imagine a kaleidoscope of vivid colors radiating from your windowsill, bookshelf, or patio. That wondrous effect is yours with our grafted cacti, beaming like little beacons. And they just might periodically reward you with adorable white light in the form of flowers. They shine in shade to indirect, bright light.

These beautiful but chlorophyll-deprived seedlings are grafted (a physical union of the vascular systems of  two plants) onto fast-growing Hylocereus cacti, a base plant that provides the necessary chlorophyll for the upper plant (the Gymnocalycium seedling lacking in chlorophyll) to thrive. 


Recommended pairings: More moon cactus (several colors available)
Bloom time: Spring to summer
Size: 6 to 12 inches high 
Porous soil with excellent drainage
Provide shade to indirect, bright light with ample airflow
Water thoroughly when soil is completely dry to the touch
Hardiness: USDA Zone 10a (30-35° F)
Protect from frost


Part of what makes succulents so fascinating are the myriad ways they express themselves throughout the year, depending on light, season, temperature, soil, and hydration. For those and other reasons, the plants you receive may not look exactly as they appear on our website.


Caring for your new plant is easy with Greg's help. You'll receive a companion app that provides ongoing Gymnocalycium mihanovichii 'Hibotan' "Moon Cactus" care, plant health tips, and help from a community of other Altman customers that will ensure your new plant thrives in its new home.
