Description:

Mexican cactus with a globular shape, slightly depressed at the top, which in the wild tends to remain almost completely underground to protect itself from atmospheric agents. In cultivation, on the other hand, it shows off its beautiful dark green color and the prominent pyramidal tubercles, pleasantly separated from each other by abundant white down. Radial spines with the appearance of microscopic whitish bristles emerge from the tubercles, accompanied by much stronger and darker central spines, tending to reddish-brown. Around the top of the cactus, small but pretty pink flowers bloom in spring, with a characteristic darker central line, which surround the plant, crowning it with a touch of vivacity and delicacy at the same time!

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.
