The Boobie cactus requires direct sun to grow evenly but be careful of very hot windowsills during summer months as the magnification from the glass can burn the spineless surface.Water only when the soil has dried out entirely. Always err on the side of under-watering. Fertilize starting in spring through summer to promote healthy growth and strong root systems.
