Part of our 'Not Quite Perfect' collection, these plants are not perfect to sell at full price, but are too good to throw into the compost pile. These Melocactus have 1 or 2 scars, but other than that are fit and healthy!


As with all 'Not Quite Perfect' products, they are non-returnable. We will never send anything out that we would not be happy to receive ourselves. Please consider this when placing your order.


Unusual globe shaped barrel cactus . The 'cephalic' in the centre grows fruit and flowers and only grows when the cactus has reached a state of maturity.


Prefers a sunny spot.

Water when soil has completely dried out throughout the summer months, water less frequently over winter.

Supplied in a 13cm nursery pot. The plant is around 13cm tall.


Repot using Soil.Ninja Cacti & Succulent Blend for best results.
