Gymnocalycium mihanovichii 'Hibotan' "Moon Cactus"
Price: $5.50Sku: 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.
