    • Notocactus apricus is a species of cactus that is native to South America. It is a hardy plant that can grow well outdoors in the UK, as long as it is given the proper care. Here are some care instructions for growing Notocactus apricus outdoors in the UK:

    • Location: Choose a spot that receives plenty of direct sunlight, as Notocactus apricus requires full sun to thrive.

    • Soil: Use a well-draining cactus soil mix that is sandy and free-draining. Notocactus apricus does not like to be kept in damp soil, so avoid using regular potting soil or soil that retains too much moisture.

    • Watering: Water the plant thoroughly when the soil is completely dry. Be careful not to overwater, as this can lead to root rot. During the summer months, you may need to water the plant more frequently, but reduce watering during the winter.

    • Fertilizer: Feed the plant with a cactus fertilizer once a month during the growing season (spring and summer).

    • Pruning: Notocactus apricus does not require much pruning. Simply remove any dead or yellowing leaves or stems to keep the plant looking tidy.

    • Winter Care: In the winter, protect the plant from frost by covering it with frost cloth or moving it to a sheltered spot. Notocactus apricus can withstand temperatures down to -5°C, but it is best to keep it above freezing.
