Plant Bio

Tephrocactus geometricus

It’s easy to see how this cactus earned its common name: It grows gray-green, sphere-shaped segments that form clusters. It comes from South America, Argentina specifically, and was discovered in the 1930s.

Like other cacti Snowman Cactus wants lots and lots of light indoors. Keep it within 2 to 3 feet of an unobstructed south-, west-, or east-facing window for best results. If you don’t have a bright window, plant lights will do just fine.

It also has low water needs and can tolerate drought. Water just before the potting mix dries out. If you’re not sure if it needs water, one way to check is to insert a wood toothpick in the drainage hole in the pot. Leave it in place for a minute or two, then pull it out. If the toothpick comes out clean, it’s probably time to water. If the toothpick comes out with potting mix adhering to it, then you can probably hold off watering.

Note: This plant may have some natural degree of toxicity and may cause discomfort or illness if ingested. Additionally, exposure to the sap of this plant may cause discomfort to individuals with a sensitivity to it upon contact. Grown for ornamental purposes and not intended for human or animal consumption.
