Description:

In nature it grows in a wide range of altitudes, from 700 to 1,250 meters above sea level. It is a columnar cactus, that initially grows in height and then assumes an almost creeping posture. The green-gray stem is covered with thick spines, that almost obscure the plant. The central and brown spines are longer and curved upwards and appear to be wrapping around the apex. From March to April you can admire its beautiful crown of bright pink flowers with red-violet shades.

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.
