Eriosyce occulta Family: Cactaceae. A beautiful small chocolate brown to black spineless cactus. Like most Eriosyce, this species forms a tap root. Flowers are pinkish orange. Requires general cactus care, but be careful not to overwater as tap rooted species are more sensitive to rot. Will clump in time. Protect from frost, though it is said to be able to withstand light frost.
Please note: Some of these plants are greenish at the moment. This is normal and happens during the hottest months (which includes October in California). It will turn black again when the weather cools as long as you give it good light.
You will receive plant shown in the last image or one similar. Plants shown in a 3" pot.
Important Shipping Information
- PLANTS ARE SHIPPED BARE ROOT If you want me to send them in pots send me a message to discuss. Extra charges due to increased shipping costs will apply.
- Immediate Payment (eBay only) Sorry! I can no longer offer a delayed purchase option as the multichannel inventory management system I have started using requires this setting.
- No Delayed Shipping (eBay only) Once you pay I have to (and WILL) ship within 3 business days or eBay will lower my seller rating. I used to have a way to delay shipping but can no longer do this for the same reason as #2 above. Feel free to message me before buying to see if we can figure something out here, no promises though.
- Winter Shipping If you live in a cold climate consider including a 96 hour heat pack in your order during the cold months. I have them as a listing. Just add it to your order. If you don’t see them just message me.
