              It's often cultivated by specialty plant nurseries because of its ornamental value. It grows extremely fast with a few requirements. It needs an average winter temperature of 12 degrees C, and excellent drainage. It's also advised not to over water this cactus in the winter time. Root rot occurs when plants in general sit in drenched soil for extended periods of time. This can also throw off the soil PH, causing all kinds of problems, including nutrient deficiencies.
