If you can grow cacti and succulents successfully, you can likely grow the ruby ball cactus without too much trouble. These plants are popular in cactus dish gardens. The ruby ball is an albino plant, it has no chlorophyll, therefore it relies on the rootstock cactus as a food source. It has a parasitic relationship. If there is a disconnect between the requirements of cactus on the bottom and the scion on top, one or both may die. Like many cacti, they prefer a drying period between waterings, even to the point where they slightly wilt. When you water, however, you should water deeply. The plant will noticeably plump up. It is imperative that the cactus is not exposed to prolonged dampness and standing water or else it may develop root rot. Make sure to fertilize cactus during the growing season for the best results.

The red ball tops are tolerant of more shade than many cacti and dislike direct sunlight. By contrast, the stock green cacti on the bottom are often light-lovers. Look for a bright area, but not so bright that the color of the top begins to wash out. Soil A rich, fast-draining cactus mix with a low pH is ideal. Make sure you meet the soil needs of the host cactus on the bottom. Water Allow the soil mix to become nearly dry between waterings, but then water thoroughly. The cactus should not be sitting in a marshy soil for more than a day or so, good drainage is essential. During the summer months, the plant may need frequent watering.

Plants in small pots will only need weekly watering. Watering in the winter months is unnecessary, but mist occasionally. Temperature and Humidity The ruby ball scion is hardy in United States Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 11 through 12. Some of its rootstock (like night-blooming cereus or blue myrtle) is hardy in zones as low as 8 or 9. If the ruby red is grafted onto a plant that remains hardy in those lower temperatures, and it is exposed to those temperatures, the grafted ruby red top will die. The rootstock will likely survive.
