The Notocactus Leninghausli or more recently changed to Parodia Leninghausli, is a cactus from Brazil and named for its softly-textured yellow spines that give it a golden-glow.
Size: This plant is in a 4'' pot, and from the bottom of the pot to the top of the plant, measures from around 6.5’’-10’’.
Light: This plant prefers to be in bright, indirect light. It can tolerate less sun than other cacti.
Water: Water when the soil is nearly completely dried out. Very drought tolerant although it needs more water than other cacti species, as it’s native to Brazil.
Humidity: This plant does not need high humidity.
Temperature: This cacti will not survive a hard frost but can grow outside in a pot in the summer in most areas. They can take a lot of heat but also do well indoors.
Soil: High-draining cactus soil with 70%-80% mineral grit such as sand, pumice, or perlite.
Fertilizing: Use a balanced 10-10-10 fertilizer, diluted to half the strength only during growing season (Spring-Fall) and every two - three weeks.
Flower: Mature plants can grow large, yellow showy flowers on the top of them.
Toxicity: Unknown. It is covered in little spines- although not particularly sharp (perspectively), you wouldn’t want your fur pals or young children to get close to it. With all plants we recommend keeping them high and out of reach from curious cats or tiny hands.
