Description

'Dominos' Easter Lily Cactus is a small round, globose cactus from South America dotted with woolly white areoles. In summer large white fragrant blooms of 3-5 open that cover the plant. Unfortunately, they last less than 24 hrs. However, the plant will repeat bloom for you 2-4 times during the summer. "Dominos' will grow to about 3 inches tall and 4 inches wide and reproduces by offsets.

You can take this plant outside into full to partial sun but it must be brought indoors before a frost. Grow in well-drained potting mix appropriate for cacti and succulents. Use a clay pot with several drainage holes for the best results. Allow the soil to dry between waterings.
