Rebutia muscula forms form low cushion covered by dense furry white spines and produces vibrant orange-red flower. The dense spines would protect it from the extremes of cold and sunshine.
Rebutia muscula is a summer grower species that is easy to cultivate and recommended for beginners. It has delightful flowers and the plants remain compact, and clumps can easily be managed by division. Another advantage is that the plants are cold hardy in winter if kept dry.
It requires full sun or light shade and careful watering to keep plant compact, and maintain strong and dense spines and allow the pot to dry out between waterings.
