Description:

The name of the species refers to the “enigma” that was created when this specimen was found in a district of Madagascar, since according to some it was an already existing species, while only later it was confirmed that it was a new one. Consisting of a massive greenish-white caudex, initially round and thorny at the top, it tends to later grow taking on the most varied and extravagant shapes. From the tuber come out lanceolate and pointed leaves, of a beautiful light green, which arrange themselves in a radial pattern starting from the top giving life to an extremely decorative complex, even more so when it is adorned with its large bright yellow flowers.

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 12 °C, for this reason it is recommended to place it in sheltered and ventilated locations during the winter period.

Water moderately but only when the soil is completely dry. Once a week in spring and summer and once a month during autumn and winter.

A well-draining and porous soil is an optimal solution, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice or lapilli.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
