Description:

It is a very slow growing, shrub-shaped, caudiciform succulent, that can reach heights of 1 to 2 meters. It has a gray-green trunk, covered with thorns, and at its apex it produces lanceolate, slightly wavy, green leaves, which it loses during the vegetative rest. In the caudex it stores water to survive during periods of drought. Its large flowers vary in color from white to purple.

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.
