10cmThis species has bristly, light yellow spines that form a pattern around the cactus. It is easy to grow in bright interior light and when it flowers, produces very showy and beautiful yellow flowers that are quite large compared to the size of the cactus. A good selection for those looking for a small but great all around flowering cactus.
Bright interior light. Outdoors is should be sheltered from the elements and any intense direct sunlight.
Allow the soil to dry completely befor watering. Use a gritty soil mix with very good drainage. Does not like to be overwatered. Usually we water every 1-2 weeks.
