-About Tephrocactus articulatus var. inermis-

Tephrocactus articulatus var. inermis, the succulent plant also called Pine Cone Cactus, The Tephrocactus articulatus var. inermis is a cactus almost without spines. The sliver knobby-stem cactus resembles most stacked pine cones and can grow up to 1 foot tall.

-How to care for Tephrocactus articulatus var. inermis-

Sun/Location: This succulent plant originates from the desert and needs a lot of sunlight to keep growing. In warm areas, outdoor care of Pine Cone Cactus is ideal. As it is not hardy, move the succulent indoors in winter to prevent frost.

Soil/Pot: Like most cactus plants, Tephrocactus articulatus var. inermis need well-drained soil to grow well. Potting soil mix for cacti is ideal for the cactus variety. Keep in mind to care for cactus in a planter pot with a drainage hole that can prevent overwatering.

Watering: As a drought-tolerated succulent plant, Pine Cone Cactus prefer to grow in dry soil, but that doesn't mean it doesn't need to be watered at all. Using the "soak and dry" way, only fully water when soil dry completely.

Winter shipping

We insist on shipping succulents to our customers all year round. However due to the extreme winter weather, although we pack succulents with as much protective material as possible, plants are still at increased risk of frost on their way to colder areas. We highly recommend adding one 72-hour heat pack to your order or you can request a hold on the package until it warms up.

Please note that The Next Gardener is not responsible for packages that suffer cold damage without a heat pack. We cannot control the weather. Order at your own risk.

Hawaii, Alaska, and Other US Territories

Fortunately, shipping is available to Alaska, Guam, and other U.S. Territories. However, due to numerous factors beyond our control, including customs checks and shipping delays, free shipping to Hawaii and Puerto Rico is not an option. And we can not provide the 14-day quality guarantee for orders going to Hawaii and Puerto Rico. The buyer will assume all risk of damage when a delivery is delayed. We appreciate your understanding.
