Ortegocactus

Its name was chosen in honor of the Ortega family, who helped Tom Macdougall in the discovery of this genus. It is an extremely rare and sought after cactus, consisting of a single species, globular and very small, with slow growth, but still extremely rich in details. A truly unique and ornamental aspect is represented by its robust and clearly visible spines, due to their black or, sometimes, white color, which gracefully fades to black at the tips. At the same time, its rhomboid and spirally arranged tubercles make it unmistakable and give such a tiny plant an extremely symmetrical and truly perfectionary look.
