Huernia Pillansii is found in the Republic of South Africa, Cape Province (Western Cape, Eastern Cape). There are about 80 species in the family. Distinct species, unique bristle-covered stems that are short erect or ascending, subglobose when young, becoming narrowly ovate or cylindric. The flowers of Huernia Pillansii can be cup-like tubes mostly facing upwards with a color of dark red mostly and dark hairs. Filtered sunlight also regular watering in their growing season and allow rest in winter. Pot in 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.
Watch your plants for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.
If they look like growing out of shape, they require more sunlight. 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.
