It is easy to grow. The main growing period is spring. It might produce some new segments in the autumn too. Hardiness: It is fairly cold resistant and hardy to -9┬░C depending on the clone. Exposure: Need full sun, (with insufficient illumination stems and spines get thinner as a result of the lack of sun) Soil requirements: It needs a very draining mineral substrate. Water needs: Watering during the active growing season (spring and summer); this will encourage steady growth. But be careful with watering (rot sensitive). Keep dry during the winter rest. Fertilization: Fertilize moderately during the growing season with diluted high potassium fertilizer.
