Fairy Castle Cactus with Cement Planter
Plant Size: Medium Size
Planter/Tub: Cement Planter ( Medium Size: 4 inch (approx.)
The Fairy Castle Cactus (Astrophytum asterias) is a small cactus species native to Mexico. It is known for its unique, stacked and spiky appearance, which resembles a miniature castle or a pagoda. This cactus has long, segmented stems that are covered in rows of small, round spines that give the plant an architectural look.
The Fairy Castle Cactus is prized for both how pretty it looks and how easy it is to take care of. It is an easy-care cactus that does best in bright, indirect light and soil that drains well. It is also very hardy and can handle being ignored for a while, making it a great choice for people who are just starting out with plants or who have busy lives.
The Fairy Castle Cactus is also a slow-growing plant, which makes it ideal for small spaces or as an accent in larger arrangements. With proper care, it can live for many years and become a treasured addition to your indoor garden.
The roots of the Fairy Castle Cactus are shallow and are mostly in the top few inches of soil. Its roots are thin and fibrous, and are well adapted to absorb moisture and nutrients from the soil. The plant is also able to store water in its stems, which helps it to survive periods of drought.
Due to its shallow root system, it is important to plant the Fairy Castle Cactus in well-draining soil. Over-watering or soil that remains too wet can lead to root rot, which can be fatal to the plant. When repotting, be sure to choose a pot that is not too deep and has adequate drainage holes to allow excess water to escape.
With proper care, the root system of the Fairy Castle Cactus should remain healthy and robust, allowing the plant to continue to grow and thrive.
Here's a full care guide for the Fairy Castle Cactus:
|Bright, indirect light is ideal. 4-6 hours of morning sun followed by afternoon shade works well.
|65-90°F (18-32°C) during the day, slightly cooler at night (55-65°F or 13-18°C). Avoid temperatures below 50°F (10°C).
|Allow the soil to dry completely between waterings. Water sparingly in the winter months.
|Well-draining cactus or succulent mix. A mix of 50% potting soil, 25% perlite, and 25% coarse sand works well.
|Fertilize every 6-8 weeks during the growing season (spring and summer) with a balanced, low-nitrogen cactus fertilizer. Avoid fertilizing in the winter.
|Choose a pot slightly larger than the cactus, ensuring it has drainage holes to prevent waterlogged soil.
|Repot every 2-3 years or when the cactus becomes root-bound. Repot in the spring, using fresh soil mix.
|Prune off dead or damaged stems with clean, sharp shears. Can be done anytime but preferably in the spring.
|Propagate through stem cuttings. Allow the cutting to dry and callous for a few days before planting in soil.
|Inspect regularly for mealybugs, spider mites, and scale. Treat with insecticidal soap or neem oil if infested.
|Low humidity is preferred; between 10-30%. Avoid misting as it can lead to fungal issues.
|Non-toxic to pets and humans, but it is best to keep it out of reach of children and pets due to the spines.
With these guidelines in mind, your Fairy Castle Cactus should be a hardy and low-maintenance addition to your houseplant collection.
