Pot: 10 cm.
Cactacea from the mountainous areas of S. America, which immediately impresses for its bright appearance, with several heads of various sizes that create a kind of wonderful spiny pillow. Each stem, globose or slightly cylindrical, does not exceed the 4 cm of diameter and has a nice dark green tonality that changes into violet when exposed to the sun. From the tubercles, grow thin short white spines which are arranged radially flattening towards the stem, almost wanting to wrap it. From spring to summer M. haagei will brighten your gardens showing up amazing large flowers with an extremely lively salmon-pink or orange color!
