Three Types Of Hairy Cactus Repotting And Care Guide


hi guys! I went to the store to pick up some soil, and I couldn’t resist taking a look at the succulent section. I found these three little hairy cactus and had to bring them home. I love cacti with fuzzy hair on them. I think they look so interesting and unique, and they’re just fascinating to look at the hairs on the cactus are supposed to protect the plant from frost and sun. I’ll be repotting these and giving a short description on each one. I have already prepared a pot here and filled it with cactus potting mix combined with perlite ill. Be putting them all together in this pot right here. So let me go ahead and get started, so let me start with this first one here on the label, it just said a Puntia, prickly pear snow. It didn’t specify the type, it just said prickly pear snow. It’s hard to find a more specific name for it. If you know what this is called, please comment down below. I would really appreciate the info. Let me give you a quick care guide about prickly pears in general. prickly pears prefer full sun for faster growth during winter. They tolerate less light. They need soil that drains well allow soil to completely dry out between thorough waterings, cut back on watering during the winter, they can tolerate up to around 30 degrees Fahrenheit or negative one degree Celsius. Many prickly pear species have good, cold tolerance. It generally does well in regions that have mild winters and hot summers with low humidity. Let me show you how it looks up close. So the next one has this name on the label. I have another old man cactus. That’s very, very similar to this but bigger than this Because I’ve had it for years. I’ll insert a video of it right here.
