A gorgeous small cactus with a green, slender, cylindrical body covered in white spines which can give the plant a lace-covered look. Growing to only 10cm tall, 5cm wide, this charming plant will cluster over time to form rounded clumps. Stems are bright green and flowers are small, creamy coloured and bell-shaped.

This is an excellent succulent for beginners as very little effort is needed and as it is slow-growing it will remain content in its container for years. It can be placed in full sun to part shade, but will also grow well indoors if given sufficient light. It has low water needs, needing only sparing water in summer and almost none in winter. Enjoys a mineral soil with good drainage.

Native to central Mexico. Common names include: Twin-spined Cactus, Whitey, White Cactus, Thimble Cactus.
