It has tubercles along its ribs, from which downy areoles with dark-colored spines protrude: the radial spines, usually 6-14 in number, are thin and slightly curved, while the central ones (1-5), are a little thicker. During the flowering period, it produces flowers of a color, that can vary from reddish to pink, up to white, with a very evident central strip.

Plant care:

It likes very bright places, however, avoid direct sunlight during the hottest hours of the day.

It prefers rather mild temperatures, however it still survives even at temperatures close to freezing if the soil is dry.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water the plant once a week in spring and summer, and suspend watering 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.
