Where it grows
The non-crested natural form of Gymnocalycium anisitii is native to South America, specifically to Bolivia.
This unique Gymnocalycium has twin stems forming a section of monstrose growth in the middle of the plant. It may produce some crested portions as it gets older.
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.
