The crested shape of this cactus presents the fan arrangement of the crest, a feature that makes each plant unique and for this reason highly sought after by collectors. In its normal form, it is a cactus with a solitary posture, but with time it turns on the base. It has green globose stems that with the growth become cylindrical, entirely covered by spines. The radial ones, which cover almost all the body of the plant, are small and thin of an almost vitreous white, the central ones are longer, curved outwards and of a brownish-yellow color, with the tips that will grow darker. In the flowering season it produces at the apex small flowers arranged in a ring, of a beautiful color that varies from light pink to bright pink.
