Pot: 6,5 cm.
It is a cylindrical and solitary cactus, highly appreciated by green collectors for its rarity and its particular hooked spines. Its opaque light green stem has multiple protuberances, on which large round and downy white areoles emerge. It is equipped with dense sturdy hooked spines of variable colors (from greyish-yellow to intense red), which completely cover the body. During spring, it generates medium-sized, funnel-shaped flowers, that can take on multiple colors: from opaque pink to brownish-red, up to blackish-purple.
