Cactaceae are one of the most numerous species with various geometric shapes – globular, columnar, flattened. They mainly come from America except for some species from Africa- They prefer well drained soil, they can tolerate temperatures close to zero as long as the soil is totally dry. They must be watered especially in Spring and Autumn, and watering must be suspended during too warm or too cold periods. If kept in the apartments, it is important to place them in the coolest room of the house during winter so that the plant can feel the difference between summer and winter, thus allowing it to rest in winter and bloom in spring or summer.
