Golden yellow spines gathered in areoles carried on tubercles in young individuals, on ribs in adult individuals. Downy sunken apex.

    Pedoclimatic needs

    Grow in full sun or in a greenhouse in cold climates where, if kept dry during the winter months, it can resist up to -4°/-6°C. Grow in loose, predominantly mineral soil, without water stagnation. Being a slow-growing cactus with fairly limited development, it is also ideal for growing in pots. Due to the beauty of its spherical shape and golden yellow thorns it is widely used in rock gardens or on terraces and balconies.
