grow them like ariocarpus or lophophora. they all like mineral soils, well drained not wet etc.

ortego dont like to get wet on top for long...because they are caespitose in nature they tend to rot if watered from above frequently cause they cant dry out fast in the cracks.

treat them like ariocarpus, but they can generally take more light/heat than arios can.
