It is a cactaceae plant often also called ‘Tephrocactus glomerata’ or ‘Opuntia glomerata’. It is very particular cactus with extremely variable spines, often very sparse or missing. Equipped with globose and ovoid joints of a dark greyish-green color, it is found at rather high altitudes. It has tiny, slightly downy areoles and tends to branch out considerably, forming dense bushes.

Plant care:

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

It prefers rather mild temperatures, however it still survives even at temperatures close to freezing if the soil is dry.

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 one, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice, sand or lapilli.

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