This guy may look like a cactus, but it's actually a succulent shrub. Don't like the spikes fool you!
It has fleshy grey-green stems that are covered with long bright red spines. Making it look really funky.
Place it in a bright spot and in spring and summer, water when the compost gets dry, but make sure it never sits in excess water for any length of time. In autumn and winter cut back on the watering but do not let it dry out completely.
Avoid a humid atmosphere (no bathrooms or steamy kitchens) and in the warmer months, open a window or door occasionally so it can enjoy the fresh air.
Toxic to pets.
Delivered in a 5.5cm plastic pot.
