Care instructions:

Sunlight: Place your Rainbow Hedgehog Cactus in a location with plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. Ensure it receives at least 6 hours of sunlight per day.

Watering: Practice the "Waterboard that bish" method. Water the cactus thoroughly, allowing excess water to drain away. Wait until the soil is completely dry before watering again. Be cautious of overwatering, especially during the dormant winter months.

Soil: Use well-draining cactus or succulent mix, like our Magic Succulent Soilju. A mix designed for desert plants will provide the ideal conditions for your Rainbow Hedgehog Cactus. Add perlite or sand to enhance drainage if needed.

Temperature: Rainbow Hedgehog Cacti thrive in warm temperatures. Keep them in an environment where temperatures range between 70°F to 100°F (21°C to 38°C) during the day. Protect them from temperatures below 50°F (10°C) to prevent damage.

Humidity: These cacti prefer low humidity environments, mimicking their native habitat. Avoid placing them in overly humid conditions, especially during the winter months.

Fertilization: Feed your Rainbow Hedgehog Cactus with a diluted, balanced cactus fertilizer during the growing season (spring and summer) every 4-6 weeks. Refrain from fertilizing during the dormant winter period.

Pruning: Minimal pruning is needed. Remove any dead or damaged stems with clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears. Wear gloves to protect your hands from the spines.

Pests: Keep an eye out for common cactus pests like spider mites and scale. Treat any infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.

Dormancy: Rainbow Hedgehog Cacti experience a period of dormancy during the winter. Reduce watering frequency during this time, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Limit fertilization during dormancy.

Caution: Handle the cactus with care, as the spines can be sharp. Keep out of reach of pets and children.
