Ceres can grow to unbelievable sizes in the wild, but at home the plant reaches hardly 60 centimeters in height.

So you need to decide in advance on which flower you give your preference to.

The flower is completely covered with very hard spines, blooms once a year (usually in early spring). The buds have bright petals of orange, red, pink or purple.

Unlike other fellows, the rebuy is very demanding for watering, so it is recommended to moisten the soil in the pot steadily and constantly (as it dries).

By the way, in addition to humidify the air in the room is not required, as chametsereusy not too dependent on the rate of humidity.
In winter, you should not worry about chamezereus at all and water it once a month. With the onset of spring, it is recommended to flavor the soil with minerals that will help the cactus to withstand the change of period and prepare for flowering.

A large amount of sunlight and constant airing of the room where the cactus container is located will contribute to flowering.
