The name of the species honors Tom Macdougall, who discovered it. It is a miniature globular cactus, which does not exceed 4 centimeters in diameter; its greyish-green stem is furrowed by rhomboid tubercles, arranged in a spiral, which gives this small plant an effect of perfect symmetry. Very particular spines emerge from slightly downy areoles, which are quite robust, of a dark, almost black, color. Its perfect appearance is further accentuated and enlivened when, from the apex, beautiful funnel-shaped flowers bloom with inner yellow petals, with the outer ones, enriched with purple hues, which create a truly unique overall effect!

Plant care:

Likes spaces under the direct sun.

It prefers mild temperatures, about 20 °C, or in any case never lower than 10 °C, therefore it is advisable to shelter it in winter.

It needs little water, once every 10 days. In winter it is advisable to completely stop watering.

A very draining substratum is an optimal solution, mixed with a small part of peat, which is preferably not too rich in minerals.

They do not need frequent fertilizations, it is enough to dilute fertilizer with watering once a year.
