Pelecyphora

The name of this peculiar plant derives from ancient Greek and literally means "ax bearing", referring to the easily recognizable shape of its flat tubercles. It is a genus that includes only two species, considered sacred plants among Native Americans. They are both characterized by globose bodies and long areolas with very small, soft and flattened spines along the stem, giving the cactus a truly unique appearance! It has a fairly slow growth, but thanks to its extremely robust roots it is easy to grow, a perfect combination of need for little care and the originality of its appearance!
