Where it grows

Gymnocalycium horstii occurs in South America, mainly in Uruguay.

Special features

This variegated globular cactus has attractively shaped spines that curve downward along the areoles. It is often called the ‘spider cactus’ for this reason. Giving it more light will encourage darker colouration and more pronounced spines.

Care Guide

This Gymnocalycium is somewhat sensitive to too much sunlight, and should be kept under 40-60% shade cloth depending on the amount of light the greenhouse receives every day. It is not fussy about their soil requirements, and any airy medium that drains well should work. Water often in the growing season, but keep this plant dry in winter.
