It is a rare cactus of an unusual shape, that makes each specimen unique and therefore highly sought after by green collectors. Its bright green stem has conical tubercles. At the end of these tubercles there are downy areoles, from which central spines emerge, ranging in color from yellow to brown, while those at the base are of a lighter color. The lower spines of each areole are hooked at the end, while the others are straight and shorter. In spring, it blooms with flowers that are funnel-shaped and have a color, ranging from white to dark pink.

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 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 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.
