The Tephrocactus articulates is a cute and unique cactus with spines that appear to be made of paper (but they are real spines!). Be careful, it’s cute but prickly. Great terrarium plant, perfect for DIY succulent arrangements.

Shown in a 2" pot. Ships in plastic pot.

Cactus pictured is one you will receive or one similar.

USDA Hardiness Zones: 10-11

If you will be experiencing below freezing temperatures, please add a heat pack to your order (available as a separate listing).

Care:
Peak growth season; Summer
Dormant: Winter
Propagation: Propagate from offshoots or cuttings during growth season, Spring is ideal.

Water only when the soil has dried, and even a little bit longer. When watering, give it a deep drink. Will require more watering in the Summer. Almost no watering in winter, depending on zone.

Your succulent will be wrapped with care and shipped with extra padding in the box. Plants can take 1-5 days to prep for shipping and weather can impact the prep time. We ship as quickly as is safe for your plant.

TIPS ON RAISING SUCCULENTS
Succulents are amazing plants that can bring color and joy to your home and landscape. They are relatively easy-care plants, making them ideal plants for beginners and enthusiasts alike. Succulents need a lot less water than other plants, because they hold so much water in their leaves.

Speaking of water - water is the most dangerous thing to your succulent plant. More succulents die from overwatering than underwatering. A couple tips to help:
• The chubbier the leaves, the less water it will need (chubbier leaves hold more water).
• Succulents can rebound from underwatering much easier than overwatering.
• Always make sure you use a well-draining potting soil and a pot with at least one drainage hole.
• Always make sure the soil is dry to the touch before watering.

What to watch for as you go through the seasons with your new plant:
*Disclaimer: these are general tips, you do need to get to know your plants and acclimate them to your own environment.
• Wrinkled and/or deflated leaves = plant needs water
• Mushy, yellowing or black leaves = plant needs less water (if leaves are really mushy, remove from pot and place in good ventilation to expedite drying out)
• Little fuzzy web-like white balls = mealy bugs
• Little round flat scab-like brown patches that wipe off easily = scale bugs
**If you see bugs you can start to control them by spraying with diluted isopropyl rubbing alcohol. First remove your succulent from direct sun and do not spray too close (recommend 6" away), saturate the base of the leaves and stem and leave in good air circulation to allow alcohol to evaporate. Retreat 24 hours later.

Air circulation and adequate light are important for your succulents to thrive.

Hi and welcome! We hope to add some plant joy to your life!
