Puna (Monstrous)


It takes its name from its place of origin, the mountainous region, located between Bolivia and Argentina. It is particularly appreciated for its characteristic shape of small spheres massed together, however, sometimes they can also have slender cylindrical stems with coral-like ramifications, certainly these cacti do not go unnoticed for their disordered arrangement, that makes each specimen different from the others. Sometimes compared to the genus Opuntia, however, they do not maintain their shape of blades, distributed in a well defined way and they bloom very rarely, but this does not make them less sought after: the symmetry of their stems contrasts so much with the asymmetry of their arrangement, that make this genus truly unusual and with a unique charm!
