Description:

It is a globular cactus with a solitary habit. Its stem has a particular intense yellow variegation that completely covers it, making it unique and highly appreciated. It is slightly concave at the apex and takes the name 'multicostatus', due to the large number of slender, well-furrowed ribs of a very wavy shape, equipped with white downy areoles. The radial spines are thin, of an almost translucent white color, while the central ones are longer, of a yellowish-white color, slightly tending upwards.

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.
