Eriosyce Occulta is a slow-growing plant that can form spines or not. The body is dark purple to almost black in color. Regular water in summer but do not overwater as it is prone to rotting.   It needs good drainage and very porous potting soil. Eriosyce Occulta can be fertilized in summer but keep dry in winter. Full sun to light shade is required. More cacti for sale in the shop.


Australian Desert Blooms Nursery is producing many more cacti, cactus, and succulents for you to buy online. If anytime this cactus is out of stock know for sure that it will be back as quickly as possible. As we produce all our own stock here in Ipswich near Brisbane.


Watch your Eriosyce Occulta for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.

Eriosyce Occulta 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.
