Description:

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.

Plant care:

It likes very bright places, however, avoid direct sunlight during the hottest hours of the day.

It adapts easily to any temperature, even withstands temperatures down to -12 °C in dry soil conditions. On the other hand, it suffers in the case of too high humidity.

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.

The best option is a well-draining and porous soil, even better if further enriched with 50% of 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.
