Description:

The crested shape of this cactus has the typical fan arrangement covered with thorns, especially along the crest; each plant will never be perfectly identical to another, therefore the shape is absolutely unique and, for this very reason, much appreciated by collectors. In its normal form, Echinocactus grusonii, also commonly called "mother-in-law's pillow", is a globular cactus with a slow growth and a solitary habit, which can become bunched over time. Its stem is light green in color, slightly concave at the apex where, over time, a thick white fluff similar to a pillow emerge. It has many well-furrowed ribs, equipped with numerous fluffy areoles of white-yellowish color, from which long and rigid yellow thorns emerge.

Plant care:

It likes an exposure to full sun in rather airy locations.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 8 °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 enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce watering to once every two months in autumn, and to suspend it completely in winter.

The best option is a substrate suitable for cactaceae, as long as it is well draining.

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