Description: A clustering blue-grey cactus that sometimes can grow up to 40 stems from the cluster base. Can also tinge pink-reddish when in direct sun light. Radial spines protrude from the stems, white in colour with brown-reddish tips.

Flowers: Medium pale pink flowers appear in Spring.

Size: Mound base grows up to 6 cm wide.

Growing Season: Spring/Summer

Origin: Mexico

Positioning: Part to full sun

Care Instructions: This plant needs plenty of sun light and warm temperatures, so is best to be kept outside during Summer. Plant in very well draining, mineral compost that allows the roots to breath, as they are prone to rot. Likes to be rested throughout Winter and be kept mostly dry. At the end of Winter increase watering gradually as you do not want to shock the plant.
