Recommended Care Instructions -
Less sun naturally means less growth. Indoors, keep your plant in an area having plenty of bright filtered light.
Long Spine Cactus is extremely heat tolerant and can grow outdoors year-round in USDA hardiness zones 9 and above, where daytime temperatures are almost always above. Eve’s Needle cannot tolerate temperatures lower than 25° degrees Fahrenheit (-4° C). Generally speaking, you should never keep this plant in an area where the nighttime temperature falls lower than 41° degrees Fahrenheit (5° C).
Water well throughout the growing season making sure the plant has plenty of good drainage so it is never standing in water.
Water extremely sparingly during the late fall and winter months.
In the wintertime, it’s best to keep Eve’s Needle dry.
Furthermore, during the growing season, refrain from watering on very humid or cloudy days.
Opuntia cactus has very low fertilizer requirements.
Amend the soil with light, airy organic matter when transplanting and to top-dress at the start of the growing season.
If you’re growing the plant outdoors, begin with gritty, sharply draining soil in a slightly elevated setting.
Amend the soil as described above to create a light, airy substrate which will not become soggy.The best time to repot Cane Cholla is in the springtime.
Don’t repot to frequently, instead wait until the cactus is somewhat root-bound. Most of the time, repotting every two years is adequate.
