Clumping gymno

I got a well cared for plant as usual. This is the only clumping gymno that I know and I can't wait until it blooms its head off like all the others in my bright bathroom.

Small but Puffed Up by Wavy Spines

Gymnocalycium bruchii is a dwarf with wavy, flexible spines that overlap and lie as flat against the stem as their waves will allow, and puff up its small size. Looking forward to it forming a colony with offsets.
