Echinocactus Palmeri is very similar to Echinocactus Platyacanthus starts off with a bluey/white body and becomes greeny/blue as it gets older. Distant ribs and spines to form a round shape plant. They grow best in well-drained soil and a position in full sun. Be careful as young plants are prone to mealy bug and red spider mite. Echinocactus Palmeri requires filtered sunlight to full sunlight per day. Cactus plants are for sale here in the shop.
Watch your plants for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.
The plant requires more sunlight if it looks like growing out of shape. Burning is a common fact when having new plants. Best to gradually give them more sunlight as the weeks go by. Instead of placing it in straight sunlight.
Allow them to sit for a week before giving them a good drink. Depending on the season. Make sure they dry out completely before watering again. Don’t forget to give them a spray with soapy water to keep the bugs off them. And provide very good ventilation.
