The Thimble Cactus is a small cactus that offsets readily and can form quite large clumps over time. These offsets are very easily detached, but will take root quite easily where they fall. The plant has white to cream, small bell shaped flowers that appear in spring to summer.
Plant in a well draining soil mix and water moderately in the warmer months, keep it drier in winter.
