I love this plant so much cause you can forget to water it for literally a year and it will still power on through. I did give it only 4 stars though because I do prick myself on a daily basis.

cactus love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.
Place it less than 1ft from a south-facing window to maximize the potential for growth.

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your cactus after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
