Are Colorful Cacti Favorite as Summer Flowering Plants?

Tuesday, July 2, 2019
Colorful cacti

We just visit Home Depot to buy our lawn mower spare parts. Then, have a look to nursery section.

We saw colorful cacti at one corner, one of waitress said that colorful cacti is one of favorite Summer Flowering Plants.

This cacti also called as chin cacti or moon cacti. It scientific name is Gymnocalycium mihanovichii.

They have variety of colors, include:
- bright reds
- pinks
- yellows
- oranges
- green
- purple
- blue

Yellow cactus

Moon cacti also known as desert germ cacti. They come from South America. Easy to grow, especially indoor.

Since colorful and small size, they are good for home decoration. Look beautiful on the table top or desks. They are perfect to be mixed with other houseplants arrangements.

Several yellow and orange cacti

The moon cacti have shorter life span compared to other cacti. The average life span was 1 to 2 years.

They would reach 4 years if we give a good care. But shorter compared to 10 years life span of several cacti.

Pink cactus

Rotting their roots is the main problem for any kinds of cacti. Rotting causes moon cacti turned to brown on the top

Generally, root rotting is caused by:
- over watered
- bad drainage
- both of over watered and bad drainage.

During winter, we no need to watering the cacti at all. They could survive until spring season.

Have you ever take care of moon cacti?

  1. I love going through the plant sections in Home Depot, Walmarts and Lowes! I have 2 Moon cacti. I think they are so pretty and alway give me a little lift when I pass by them. When summer comes, they go outside on the porch and then we bring them back in when fall arrives! I really dn't water them much at all. Happy 4th of July!

  2. It's fun to look at houseplants for sale, but I cannot bring them home because I am terrible about over-watering them! So I just enjoy my outside garden.

  3. The moon cacti are so vibrant with those colors! Since I am clumsy, a cacti is not a good plant choice for me.

  5. I am glad you found them, they are very colorful. We haven't had moon cactus, I didn't know about them. I doubt the rabbits would be eating them. This year they decided that marigolds were edible Last year these were safe. At another residence we had a nice century plant that student brought me from his travels. It was very easy to care for.

  21. How interesting about the cacti flowers.
    When I was a child I had a cacti and was astonished when it produced a tiny flower after several years. The ones you show look very exotic.

  22. They are fascinating to look at, and these specimens are very colourful. The ones I've known all put me off with their dull green shades and nasty spiky or spiny bits! But you might change my mind :).
