Huernia Guttata Subsp comes from Eastern Cape, Northern Cape, and Western Cape. The typical plants occur mainly in the Eastern Cape from Somerset East southwards towards Kirkwood and at Uniondale. About 80 species in the family. It is clumping form and has short stems that like look they have spines but not. Star-shaped flowers they have. Filtered sunlight is best for these plants and also rest them in winter with less watering. Regularly watering in their growing season and also cactus mixed with extra perlite or pumice. A gritty, very free-draining compost is suitable, and clay pots help the plants to dry out between watering. Re-pot every 2 years.


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 Huernia Guttata Subsp for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.

Huernia Guttata Subsp 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.
