It is a rare, slow-growing succulent plant with a green, globular stem that tends to stretch up and cluster. Unlike D. longimamma, this cultivar has much more compact tubercles and very sparse and short spines. It's a bizarre cactus that resembles an artichoke and is highly sought after by cactus collectors for its unusual shape. While growing D. longimamma f. monster stretches up and tends to lignify at the base. Its yellow flowers open up during the day.

Plant care:

They grow well in dimness but require a lot of undirected light.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 6 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. It is sufficient once a week in spring and summer, reduce it to every two months in autumn and to suspend it completely in winter.

The best soil is a well draining one, for example formed by a mix of peat and pumice so that water does not stagnate.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
