The famous small ball cacti which hails from central South America is spectacular and easy to grow making it an excellent beginner’s cactus. Ribbed and quite small, it takes on a ball or cylinder shape and grows up to 50cm tall and 10cm wide. It features pale green stems and a distinctive spiny woolly crown, and will generously bloom with big yellow flowers. Older plants may also produce red, orange or pink flowers. The “Snowball Cactus” is highly ornamental due to its form, colours and proliferation of thorns hiding stem surfaces.

Easy to cultivate, place in full sun to light shade, avoiding direct afternoon sunlight. Provide a rich, well draining cactus mix and water regularly in its growing season but keep dry in winter.
