Pot: 6 cm.
Toumeya papyracantha is a cactus that can reach up to 8 cm in height. Its green stem is covered with thorns: along the body they are smaller and white and almost take on shapes that resemble small stars. Going up towards the top, these become longer and brown and also change consistency, meaning they almost seem like made of paper. This new feature makes them appear lighter and more delicate, curved and non-linear. Its shape can vaguely resemble that of a small palm, and at the top, beautiful bell-shaped whitish flowers can grow.
