Description:

In nature it grows in a tropical forest at an altitude between 150 and 2,100 m asl. It is a cactus with a solitary habit, that takes on a dichotomous form with growing, for this reason it is called "Owl's Eye Cactus". On its dark green stem there are numerous pyramidal tubercles, among which a thick white down develops. The brown spines are straight, stiff and robust, taking on a gray color over time. The flowers are born at the apex, where the plant developed the previous year. Flowering occurs in spring, blooming with funnel-shaped flowers of a yellow color, mottled with brown inside the petals.

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.
