Description:

This cactus has a cylindrical shape slightly swollen on the sides, an emerald green body, with conical tubercles among which, in young plants, there is a light white fluff which tend to disappear with age. From small round areolas emerge thick whitish radial spines, straight and arranged in a circular pattern, and two or three reddish-brown central spines facing outwards, which tend to elongate at the top and head upwards. Right in the middle of those, large pink flowers with pleasant multi-layered petals will blossom in summer!

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light throughout the year, however, avoid direct sunlight especially during the hottest hours of the day.

It is preferable to keep it at temperatures not below 0°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 autumn and winter.

The perfect soil is a highly draining and porous one, for example a mixture of peat and pumice so that it does not stagnate the water.

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