Grafted Cactus Pink 'Moon Cactus'
- Pink Moon cactus has a permanent pink colour.
- Often mistaken for a flower, the colourful top is actually a different plant to the green ‘stalk’.
- The two cacti are grafted, growing as one.
- The genetic mutation in Gymnocalycium Mihanovichii (the top cactus) exposes the bright colours, but the plant lacks chlorophyll which is essential in photosynthesis. Because of this, it cannot survive for long on its own. The problem can, however, be solved by grafting (cutting and attaching) Gymnocalycium on to another cactus that will provide the chlorophyll.
- The grafted cactus or moon cactus is very slow growing and is a happy houseplant, provided it is placed in a bright spot.
