Also known as Eriosyce Gerocephala, Neoporteria Nidus var. Gerocephala
Watch your Neoporteria Gerocephala cactus for the first couple of months to check if they are happy where they are.
The Neoporteria Gerocephala 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.
