Neowerdermannia

This is a particular cactus genus, whose name means "new Werdermannia", to indicate a new genus, dedicated to the German botanist and explorer Erich Werdermann. These are spherical plants with accentuated tubercles, vivid colors, and brownish spines, decorated with pretty snow-white flowers, sometimes shaded, that contrast nicely with the green color of the body. Not many people know, that the roots of this cactus in the areas of its origin, where it is known by the term "Achacana", are used as a substitute for potatoes and harvested for food, especially for special holidays!
