• Its Latin name is Gymnocalycium mihanovichii
  • All Moon Cacti are actually two different plants grafted together! The top portion can’t produce enough (if any at all) chlorophyll, and so it relies on its bottom to survive
  • Prefers bright, indirect sunlight
  • Water minimally, and even then, only when the soil is dry and dusty
  • Unglazed, shallow clay pots are often best for moon cacti, as they can help to ensure that the plant doesn’t suffer from too much water
