Chin Cactus (Gymnocalycium mihanovichii friedrichii): Small round, globe-shaped cactus with 8 or more deep ribs. Blooms range from white to pink. Native to Paraguay. This plant is fully rooted in a 2.5" round plastic pot.
This cactus variety will not survive a hard frost, but if there is a risk of freezing temperatures it can be brought indoors to grow on a sunny window sill or under a grow light. Cactus need bright sunlight, great drainage, and infrequent water to prevent rot. Pick containers with drainage holes and use well-draining cactus and succulent soil with 70% to 80% mineral grit such as coarse sand, pumice, or perlite. Water deeply and wait for the soil to completely dry out before watering again.
