D. longimamma in its crested shape is a unique exemplar thanks to its fan-shaped arrangement, never identical in different plants, a characteristic that makes each of them absolutely unrepeatable. In its normal form it is a plant with a spherical and green stem covered by very pronounced tubercles (in fact its name 'longimamma' means "long udders"). Over time, he tends to tuft. Its yellow thorns are very thin and long and are born in rather numerous groups from white and woolly areoles. From May to July you can admire its beautiful large bright yellow flowers.

Plant care:

They grow well in dimness but require a lot of undirected light.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 6 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. It is sufficient once a week in spring and summer, reduce it to every two months in autumn and to suspend it completely in winter.

The best soil is a well draining one, for example formed by a mix of peat and pumice so that water does not stagnate.

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