  • About Plant- Brain cacti are not as common in the trade as some of the others, but well worth buying if you happen to see one. The Stenocactus genus includes globular cactus with a distinctive wavy rib pattern, instead of straight ribs. Besides their distinctive wavy ribs, these cacti also feature stiff and short spines. Younger plants lack the distinctive wavy ribs and have tubercules. These will develop into the typical ribs when the plant is older.


    Stenocactus (Brain Cactus) Plant Care


    Light- Stenocactus like bright sunlight and thrive in full sun and strong light.

    Water- Throughout the growing season (spring and summer) let the potting soil almost completely dry out between waterings, then water thoroughly. In winter, cut back watering.

    Soil- A rich, fast-draining cactus mix is ideal.

    Fertilizer- During the growing season, fertilize with a cacti fertilizer mix. Suspend feeding during the dormant winter period.


    Propagation- Stenocactus propagate easily from seed. The seeds readily germinate. Seeds are contained in green seedpods.


    Repotting- Repot as needed, preferably during the warm season. To repot cacti, make sure the soil is dry before repotting, then gently remove the pot. Knock away the old soil from the roots, making sure to remove any rotted or dead roots in the process. 

     Leave the plant dry for a week or so, then begin to water lightly to reduce the risk of root rot.
