Native to South America, the Balloon Cactus, better known as Notocactus Magnificus or Parodia Magnifica, is a clustering beauty, growing many pups; each reaching over 30cm in diamante when mature.
This Blueish Green cactus is identified by its golden thin spines and crown of matching yellow flowers that bloom from Spring to Late Summer.
Protected from frost, this species requires little upkeep and maintenance.

WATER: Water generously when soil is dry in Autumn/Summer/Spring, seldom in Winter.
OUTDOORS: Absolutely, position your plant in half day sun, a bright shaded area or full day sun. We recommend watering plants in full day sun more frequently in the peak of Summer (biweekly - weekly); this regular watering over summer helps prevent sunburn in extreme weather.
INDOORS: This plant is comfortable in well lit indoor areas - preferably close to a window (preferably 2-3+ hours of direct sun on a sunny day)
NB: The most affordable and efficient way to measure if it is time to water your cacti is by using a water meter. When the meter reads “DRY” its time to water again. Remember, over watering Cacti is the main cause of death. Head to our online store to buy your water meter today!
