Culture: Neobuxbaumia euphorbioides are of easy culture and
can grow 5-15 cm a
year. They are cold intolerant. Make sure they
are not exposed to freezing temperatures ( Hardy to -2°C) or they may
need a well drained soil mix. Water regularly in
summer but allow to dry fully before watering again. During the winter
months they should be rather kept dry. Since they are rapid growers,
they need plenty of space for their roots. Repotting should be done
every other year, or when the plant has outgrown its pot. Sun Exposure:
Light shade when young, full sun later.
Propagation: From cuttings
in spring (let them dry till the ends callous well). Then replant them
in fresh cactus soil that is ever so slightly moist, and keep it that
way till they root), or by grafting.
