Gymnocalycium pflanzii albipulpa
Gymnocalycium pflanzii albipulpa is a Solitary or slowly clustering cactus
Stem: 10-15 (25) cm in diameter, 10 cm tall, pale green that turns to an orangish purple in full sun. The epidermis has a velvety appearance. The apex is slightly depressed and woolly.Ribs: 10 to 12 thick, divided into polygonal rounded (not chinned) tubercles, separated by arched furrows.Spines: Strong, bent, initially blackish with a brown base then becoming grey-pinkish with black point.
Flowers: Infundibuliform near the apex, diameter and height 45-50 mm. Pericarpell: dull green and very short. External tepals are spatulate, slightly bent outward, white with brownish green midribs. The inner tepals are narrower, spatulate and slightly denticulate, white with a carmine-pink, purplish throat. Styles are carmine with carmine pink 10-12 lobes. Pollen is yellow.
Gymnocalyciums are very gratifying plants. They are easy to cultivate, and their flowering is abundant if we give them a well drained relatively rich substrate (if possible, not limestone). Water regularly in summer (but do not over-water). Keep rather dry in winter. It needs frequent repottings and a very luminous exposure, but avoid direct exposure to the sun's rays. This species is particularly easy and accommodating, and seldom suffers from cryptogamic diseases. Feed with a high potassium fertilizer in summer. Hardy as low as -5° C (or less) if kept dry.
