Description:

It is a very particular small cactus, which does not reach large dimensions but is highly appreciated for its delicate and exactly symmetrical characteristics. The stem has a globular shape, which becomes slightly cylindrical with growth, and looks completely white thanks to the very thick microscopic spines that surround it; these spines are almost glassy, with a silky and candid appearance, also due to the down present between the tubercles arranged in a spiral way. In the flowering season, this monochrome is pleasantly interrupted by the corolla of small carmine pink flowers that bloom at the top of the plant, creating some sort of a crown.

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.
