Gymnocalycium mihanovichii 'Hibotan', also known as Pink Cactus or Ruby Ball Cactus, is a unique and colorful cactus plant that is popular among collectors. Here are some care tips for this plant:

  1. Light: Pink Cactus prefers bright, indirect light. Avoid direct sunlight, as it can scorch the plant's skin.

  2. Water: Water the plant sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out between waterings. Overwatering can lead to root rot, so make sure the soil has good drainage.

  3. Soil: Pink Cactus prefers a well-draining soil mix specifically formulated for cactus and succulents.

  4. Temperature: The ideal temperature range for this plant is between 60-80°F (16-27°C). Avoid exposing the plant to temperatures below 50°F (10°C).

  5. Fertilizer: Pink Cactus does not require frequent fertilization. You can fertilize the plant once or twice a year with a balanced, water-soluble fertilizer specifically formulated for cactus and succulents.

  6. Propagation: Pink Cactus can be propagated by stem cuttings. Cut a piece of the stem, let it dry for a few days, then plant it in a well-draining soil mix specifically formulated for cactus and succulents.

  7. Dormancy: Pink Cactus can go into a period of dormancy during the winter months. During this time, reduce watering and stop fertilizing until new growth appears in the spring.

Remember to keep your plant away from pets and children as it's toxic when ingested. Pink Cactus is a slow-growing plant that requires little maintenance, making it a great addition to your collection of succulent plants.
