These small, brightly coloured, globular cacti are clump-forming, vigorous growers which easily flower, making them very rewarding for beginners. A compact, clustering variety with small stems, light spines and funnel-shaped, bright yellow flowers, they will flower as a houseplant with results depending on a range of growing conditions.
Ideally, place in full sun to bright light, in a cool and dry temperature. Minimal watering, allowing plant to dry out between waterings, will help plant maintain its small size. Keep dry in winter. Well suited to a rock garden or container.
Native to Argentina and Bolivia.
