The zygocactus is a visually unique plant; whether the plant is in full bloom or it has an abundance of crab claw-like foliage. This specific zygocactus will eventually produce multiple blooms in the right season (typically heading into the cooler season) and has a beautiful apricot colour. Although the title has the word 'cactus' in it, the care for this plant differs from your usual cactus plant so check out the care below to ensure that you are taking care of this lovely plant!

Basic Care Requirements:

Water: Although the word 'cactus' is in the name of this plant, it loves to have slightly damp soil and can tolerate being dried out from time to time. If this plant is constantly left to dry out between waterings, this can stunt the production of blooms, so ensure that you water your plant every 8-9 days in summer & once every 2 weeks in winter. After watering, ensure the excess water has been removed from the drip tray to avoid root rot.

Light: This plant enjoys bright, indirect light and can tolerate morning/evening sun, however avoid a harsh mid-day sun spot. 

Soil: A high-quality, well-draining soil mix such as a cacti mix. 

Humidity: This plant originates from a tropical area so medium to high humidity is recommended for this plant - the bathroom and kitchen are great high humidity spots.

Fertilizer: Use a balanced fertiliser once a month during Spring and Summer. We recommend the Dyna Gro Foliage-Pro as this fertilizer contains all the required nutrients that will support foliage growth in your plant.

The Dyna Gro Pro-TeKt is a recommended suppliment that encourages cellular growth and strengthening that will aid your plant in protecting itself against pests.

Both are available in our 'Plant Food' section of the website.

Toxicity: Toxic.

Origin:  South-East Brazil.
