    • Notocactus leninghausii, commonly known as Golden Ball cactus or Lemon Ball cactus, is a popular and relatively easy-to-care-for cactus species. Here are some care instructions:

    • Light: Place your Notocactus leninghausii in a location where it can receive plenty of bright, indirect sunlight. These cacti thrive in sunny conditions but can get sunburned if exposed to direct sunlight for extended periods, especially during the hottest part of the day. A south-facing window is usually ideal.

    • Temperature: These cacti prefer warm temperatures and can tolerate a range between 15°C to 27°C during the growing season. In winter, they can handle cooler temperatures down to around 10°C, but it's best to keep them away from drafts and sudden temperature drops.

    • Watering: Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Overwatering is one of the most common mistakes in caring for cacti. Typically, during the growing season (spring and summer), water your Notocactus leninghausii once every 2-3 weeks. In winter, reduce watering to once a month or even less, as the plant enters dormancy.

    • Soil: Plant your Notocactus leninghausii in a well-draining cactus or succulent mix. You can also make your own mix by combining regular potting soil with perlite or coarse sand to improve drainage.

    • Potting: Use a pot with drainage holes to prevent water from pooling at the bottom, which can lead to root rot. Repotting is typically necessary every 2-3 years, or when the plant outgrows its current container.
