It is a solitary cactus of a globular or cylindrical shape, slightly depressed at the apex, which can occasionally branch out - a characteristic from which the name of the species derives (from the Latin word "fasciculatus" = "grouped"). The stem can grow up to 20 cm in height, produces up to 80 wavy ribs, on which 1-3 areoles are formed, that first are downy and then become bare with age. The central spines grow upwards, are 3-4 in number, flattened, 1 to 10 cm long, of a color that fades from yellowish to blackish, while the radial spines are 4-6, about 1 cm long, of a brownish-yellow color. In late spring-early summer, pink inflorescences with a central purple line bloom at the apex. Synonym: Stenocactus fasciculatus.

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 5 °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 the plant once a week in spring and summer and suspend watering completely in winter.

The best soil is a well-draining and porous one, even better if further enriched with 50% or more of inert materials such as pumice, lapilli or clay.

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