This Gymnocalycium is quite small, and has a dark colouration with a rounded stem shape. It produces large white flowers.
Gymnocalycium is an easy cactus to care for, though care should be taken to not expose this species 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.
