Description:

It is a geometrically exact spherical cactus, depressed at the apex. Generally solitary, this bright green plant has beautiful yellow variegations, which make each specimen unique, you will never find two identical plants. The epidermis is covered with large conical-shaped protruding tubercles, where short golden spines emerge, which are arranged in a star shape. Between the grooves, a short white down is evident, which separates the tubercles. Its lime yellow flowers are small; when bloom, they form a corolla around the apex.

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.
