Notocactus leninghausii 'Golden Ball Cactus'


With bright green, columnar stems, the shallow ribbing of Notocactus leninghausii ‘Golden Ball Cactus’ is almost entirely obscured by the shimmery aura created by a profusion of both short and long creamy yellow spines. While this variety can reach up to 2 feet tall within the landscapes of its native Brazil, in our homes it tends to stay far more petite, adding a pop of sunshine to any well-lit windowsill.

Though more tolerant of dimmer indoor conditions than many cacti, ‘Golden Ball Cactus’ will appreciate the brightest light you can provide it, which will encourage healthy growth as well as large yellow blooms during the spring and summer months.  Plan to adhere to a thorough yet infrequent watering routine, such as the ‘soak and dry’ method, in combination with a porous cactus soil and a well-draining pot. As with all cacti, overwatering can result in rot, so take care to allow the soil to dry out completely before providing another drink.

Hardy only to Zone 10, take steps to protect ‘Golden Ball Cactus’ from freezing temperatures during the winter months.
