Also known as the Turk's Cap cactus. Forms a fuzzy white and red top known as a cephalium, where flowers and fruits emerge. This species will form the cephalium relatively early, whereas most take quite a bit of time. Blue skin!!! Nice, symmetrical, globular cactus. Cephalium will continue to grow, eventually becoming rather tall and striking! 3” pot size has not grown the cephalium yet.
