Product Information: Leuchtenbergia Principis

Welcome to our exclusive collection of Leuchtenbergia Principis, a captivating slow-growing cactus that will add a touch of charm to your garden. With its long, thin tubercles adorned with spines at the end of each, this unique cactus boasts a distinctive appearance that evolves as it matures.

As the Leuchtenbergia Principis ages, it develops a bare and corky base, creating a visually intriguing contrast. The vibrant yellow flowers further enhance its beauty, making it a standout choice for cactus enthusiasts.

To ensure optimal growth, avoid overwatering and exposure to cold weather, as Leuchtenbergia Principis is susceptible to root rot. During winter, light watering is recommended, and a well-draining soil mix is essential for its overall health.

Hey there! Guess what? The Australian Desert Blooms Nursery is growing lots of awesome cacti,  just for you to buy online. And here’s the cool part – if the cactus you want is ever out of stock, don’t worry! We’re working super fast to bring it back for you. All our cacti are made right here in Ipswich, near Brisbane. So, keep an eye out for your favorite cactus, and it’ll be back in no time!


Keep an eye on your Leuchtenbergia Principis for the first couple of months to make sure they’re super happy where they are.

If they start looking a bit stretchy, like they’re reaching out too much, it means they need more light. But be careful! Sometimes new plants can get a bit sunburned, just like us at the beach. So, let’s be kind and slowly give them more sunlight over a few weeks, okay? Don’t just plop them in the blazing sun right away.

Now, when it’s time to water, hold your horses! Let them chill for a week before giving them a big gulp. Depending on whether it’s sunny or chilly, make sure they’re all dried out before you water again.

Oh, and here’s a secret weapon: give them a little spray with soapy water. It keeps the bugs away – bugs aren’t invited to this plant party! And make sure there’s a good breeze around them. Plants love fresh air, just like we do. Happy growing!


We’re like magical seed collectors all year round! We pick our seeds from the plants we have, and we also buy some super cool seeds from other countries. This way, we make sure we have lots of different types of plants popping up every year. It’s like having a garden full of surprises!

Sowing Instructions

Hey plant buddies! Let’s talk about growing seeds into cool plants. Seeds need light, warmth (15-35°C), and a bit of humidity for a cozy wakeup. Use a succulent mix with top-notch drainage and zero fertilizer – their dream bed. In the early days, they like a gentle light, but not a direct sun. For 4-8 weeks, keep them in the shade with indirect sunlight. Super important – don’t let them dry out; keep them moist, not too wet. Be patient; these baby plants are fragile. As they grow, slowly give them more sunlight. It’s like helping them become little sun-loving superstars!


Hey there! When you check out our website, the pictures are au naturel – no fancy edits, just how they look in real life. But, heads up, the ones you get might be a bit different in size and shape. Don’t worry, though! The biggest cactus or succulent we have at the time of sale is what you’ll get. And to make things super easy, each one comes with its name tag for a quick ID. Happy planting!


Your new green buddies, they’re like superheroes without capes, no soil or pot, and wrapped up in paper. We only send them on Mondays to Wednesdays, and guess what? It’s like they’re VIPs because we use the speedy Australia Post service. For any size package, we go all-out express post! So, get ready for your plant adventure – it’s on the way!
