Description:

It is a slow-growing cactus that can reach up to 10 cm in diameter. It has a dark green globose stem, densely covered with needle-like spines (hence the name of the species). In fact, from the downy whitish areoles, 5-6 rigid and long central spines emerge, of a color that fades from pale yellow to dark brown towards the tip, whilst the radial spines (20-25) are thinner, of a white or pale yellow color. In spring, it blooms with funnel-shaped inflorescences of a color that can vary between yellow, orange and purple.

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.
