Grafted Ball Cactus is made when ball cactus is grafted on the top of other cactus. Ball cactus gets its name from its appearance. They can grow in clusters up to over a foot wide when grafting is not done. Older plants will frequently produce flowers in beautiful shades of yellow, red, orange, or pink, and all varietals feature ridges of spikes that start out white and grow to a yellow-brown with age.
While they prefer a warm and dry climate, they are more adaptable than some of their cacti cousins, able to withstand temperatures that hover around freezing as long as they’re kept dry. It’s important to remember that the ball cactus doesn’t like direct sunlight and is accustomed to more water than many other cacti species. Ball cacti are moderate growers, adding about 4 inches to their height each year. Which makes it suitable for grafting with other cactus.
