DescriptionCactus are popular choices to plant in pots or in gardens for ornamental effect. They often have succulent stems, are commonly covered with thorns, and give delicate flowers. Most plants of Cactaceae family are resistant to drought, need sufficient sunlight, and are easy to care distributed throughout tropical, subtropical, and semi desert regions with scarce rainfall, intense sunlight, and hot temperatures. The optimum temperature for growth is 20 – 35 ℃.The air humidity should not be too high and the environment should be well-ventilated. It can be placed on the outdoor balcony or in the garden without shade. However, long-time exposure to blazing sunlight should be avoided in hot summer, when it needs to be shaded or cooled a little to prevent high temperatures from damaging it. It grows best in fertile, gravel-rich, water-permeable soil with a pH value of 6-7. The culture soil formula often used is 60% vermiculite + 20% coco coir or peat moss + 20% sandy soil. A small amount of organic potting soil can also be added. Lightweight culture media such as vermiculite can be added to improve the air permeability of the soil. Eggshell powder or vermicomposting can also be added to increase the soil fertility. Ball cactus is a drought-tolerant plant that does not require frequent watering. Water thoroughly when the soil is completely dry. Use nitrogen fertilizer during seedling and phosphate-potassium fertilizer before and after blooming. Main propagation methods include division and grafting. To divide, cut off the tip or lateral branches of the stem with a knife and plant it in soil. After a period of time, many small shoots will grow up near the cut. When a shoot grows to proper size, it can be cut off and transplanted to form a new plant.
