Description:

A globose cactus plant, which over time becomes columnar and can reach up to one meter in height. Its dark green stem has variegations, ranging in color from white to yellow and pink, more or less large and intense, which make each specimen unique. The epidermis is covered with downy white spots that easily distinguish it from all other species of this genus. The ribs are well marked with a thin margin, have sparse downy yellowish areoles, from which tufts of long twisted, flattened and brownish-gray spines grow, that are similar to horns of capricorn, hence the name of the species. During summer, large funnel-shaped inflorescences bloom at the apex of the plant, of a typical yellow color with a red throat.

Plant care:

Requires an exposure to full sun since it requires a lot of light all year around. When the plants are still very young, it is advisable to prottingect them from direct sun rays during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 4 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once every two weeks in spring and summer, once every two months in autumn and suspend it completely in winter.

A well-draining and mineral-rich substrate is an optimal solution, for example a soil suitable for cacti, to which pumice can be added.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
