It may need weekly watering during the summer. Pot in fast draining sand and soil mix with drainage holes at the bottom. Water when completely dried out, drench until water comes out of the bottom then leave to dry again. Check for common pests such as aphids and spider mites. Many pests can be removed simply by spraying the plant with strong stream of water. You can also wash the leaves with insecticidal soap. Repot every year during Spring. Check the bottom of the pot to see if the roots are growing out of the drainage holes or growing in a dense circle.A south- or east-facing window will be ideal for most cacti. However, if the cactus starts to look yellowed, bleached, or orangey, it is likely getting too much light, and you should move it to a west-facing window. 19cm wide plastic pot
