This cactacea is a subspecies of Cochemiea pondii. It is distinguished from the typical species by its hooked, silvery-white spines, tending upwards. The stem has a cylindrical shape, which over time tends to grow in height and branch out at the base. The epidermis, of a light green color, has multiple well-defined protruding tubercles, equipped with small round downy areoles. During spring you can admire its beautiful funnel-shaped flowers of a scarlet red color, which bloom at night.
