Description:

Cactacea very diffused in almost all the world, of reduced dimensions (hence the name of the species) with globose stem, slightly depressed at the apex, tending with the growth to light abundantly creating a thick pillow of multiple suckers that do not exceed a few centimeters in diameter. Equipped with numerous little pronounced tubercles, it has small areoles, from which come out short tufts of extremely thin thorns, from the shades varying from the almost vitreous white (especially in specimens with reduced illumination) up to the intense yellow ( when solar radiation is massive). In spring R. minuscula produces pretty and abundant flowers around the base on the notes of fuchsia or red.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light during all seasons, however avoid direct sun rays during the hottest hours of the day, as they could cause burns.

It prefers rather mild temperatures, yet it is very resistant. However, it is preferable to keep it at temperatures above 0 °C.

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

A soil suitable for cacti is an optimal solution, even better if it is further mixed with 50% of pumice or lapilli.

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