Description All Notocactus are slow growing plants and make excellent house plants. They are globular to low columnar with characteristically depressed centers, usually many ribs, and usually many fine spines. They tend to be fairly short growing plants, but some species can reach 3 feet (90 cm), with cylindrical and spherical stems which are rarely branched. The flowers tend to be yellow, in profusion, with red stigma lobes, and are borne on the upper "shoulders" of the plants in spring. Seed capsules retain the dried flower and are dry and papery when ripe. The seeds frequently fall next to the mother plant and germinate there. They bloom young, prolifically, and easily if not kept dry in the winter. When growing at home it is best to avoid any frost as you may loose the plant but during the winter the temperature can be as low as 2C without any harm so long as the compost is very dry. During the summer it is best to keep the plants outside where the temperature can rise to over 30C with no harm to the plant. If kept in a greenhouse you will need to watch the temperature as under glass it can rise dramatically particularly if the windows and vents remain closed. Notocactus cactus is best grown in a terracotta type pot which should have at least one drainage hole in the base and it should be unglazed. This type of pot allows good drainage and allows the compost (therefore the roots) to breath. The plants should be kept almost completely dry during the winter months, only water them to prevent the roots from completely drying out, once a month should be fine. Repotting should be done every other year or every three years, annual potting is not necessary. Remove the plant from its put by wrapping newspaper around the stem if it is very spiny. Carefully tap it out of the pot and remove the old compost to examine the roots, if any are damaged or showing signs of rotting they should be removed as close to the plant as possible.If you are lover of the succulents&cacti check our aeonium, cotyledon, echeveria,lithops,melocactus,notocactus mixes Pictures sell!
