Please note that each plant is unique, and the crested shape may differ to some extent from the photos.
Where it grows
The non-crested natural form of Gymnocalycium anisitii is native to South America, specifically to Bolivia.
This unique Gymnocalycium has a stem that contorts in on itself along the central growth point, giving it a jagged appearance. These particular specimens have a minimalistic central crested shape.
Gymnocalycium is an easy cactus to care for, though care should be taken to not expose the crested form to frost. This plant can handle full morning sun, and will enjoy a sunny spot in a cactus greenhouse. Plant it in a gritty and well-aerated soil mix that allows for free drainage of water. Water it well in the spring and summer growing season, but keep dry in winter. Do not water on top of the stem, as any water stuck in the crested portion will cause stem rot.
Spring and summer.
This plant is also known as a the variegated 'artichoke' cactus due to its appearance. It has layered, triangle shaped protrusions covering its stem.
Mammillaria perbella is a cluster-forming species of cactus with pure white spines. The crested form has attractive stems that resemble undersea coral.
