Gymnocalycium mihanovichii 'Grafted Moon Cactus' Purple

$ 15.00
Size: 4"

Embrace the otherworldly charm of Gymnocalycium mihanovichii 'Grafted Moon Cactus - Purple', a captivating succulent that hails from the arid landscapes of South America. This unique plant is a true spectacle of nature, combining the hardy base of a green cactus with a vibrant, almost neon, purple top. The grafted union of these two plants allows the 'Moon Cactus' to flourish, presenting a stark contrast of colors that is sure to catch the eye.

Standing proud at a modest height, this petite succulent rarely exceeds 4 inches, making it an ideal addition to any indoor space, whether perched on a sunny windowsill or nestled among a collection of desk plants. The purple top does not perform photosynthesis as well as its green counterparts, which adds to its rarity and allure. Its spherical shape and the bright burst of color atop its green base lend it an almost alien beauty, a living piece of art.

While it may not bloom in the traditional sense, the 'Grafted Moon Cactus - Purple' makes up for it with its year-round vibrant display. Care for this succulent is straightforward, requiring only occasional watering and plenty of bright, indirect light to keep its colors vivid. However, it's important to note that this plant's lifespan is shorter than that of many other succulents, making every moment with this stunning specimen precious.

In a pot, it becomes a solitary statement piece, but when grouped with other succulents, the 'Grafted Moon Cactus - Purple' stands out as a vivid highlight, bringing a touch of the extraterrestrial to any collection. Its unusual appearance and easy care make it a perfect gift for both seasoned succulent enthusiasts and novices alike, offering a splash of color and intrigue to any indoor garden.


Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
