Beautiful globe-shaped cactus. Its variegation makes it very sought after by collectors from all over the world because the variegated plants are unique and you never find two equal. Its stem has an olive green color which contrasts with the beautiful yellowish hue of the variegation, for a very pleasing and eye-catching visual effect. Its areoles are ovoid and from them come out the thin white thorns. R. tarvitaensis f. variegated blooms in spring, with some beautiful red-orange flowers, very lively and that immediately capture the attention.
