Gymnocalycium Doppianum is a variation of G. Andreae. It is a low growing prickly cactus, often branching basally in cultivation to form clusters to 15 cm or more wide.

Spines: 9-13, weak, all 1-1,5 cm long (or less).

Radial spines: Thin, spreading, 6(-9) lateral and 1 descending, similar to the centrals, dull white or yellow-white, with a chestnut base.

Central spines: 1-3, slender, needle-like often somewhat curved upward, rough, dark brown.

Flowers: Bell-shaped to funnel-shaped, 2,5-4 cm long and up to 5,5 cm in diameter at anthesis, bright satiny-yellow. Tubeless or with a very short tube. Outer perianth segments pale greenish yellow with darker green mid-stripe outside. Inner perianth segments clear sulphur-yellow, narrow to almost spatulate. Style with about 8 stigmatic lobes. Anther yellow.

Blooming season: Flowers are borne in early summer.

Fruits: Globose to cylindrical, blue-green, approx. 1,2 cm in diameter.
