Gymnocalycium eurypleurum is a variable low growing species, especially for spination. (Some plants have minimal spination while others seem quite heavily armed). Endemic from a small barren, inhospitable corner of North Paraguay almost up to the border to Bolivia.


Flowering
Mostly near the apex, bell-shaped, pure white or white with a hint of lilac, about 30 mm in length and diameter.


Water and Feeding/Fertilizer
Water regularly in summer (but do not overwater ) Keep this plant almost dry in winter at a minimum temperature of 0°C.


Soil
prefer relatively rich substrate and low pH compost (if possible not limestone)


Hardiness
It is quite frost resistant if kept dry (hardy to -5° C)


Light
Light shade. It may tolerate bright situations but is likely to suffer from sun scorch or stunted growth if over exposed to direct sunlight during the hottest part of the day in summer.


Propagation
Direct sow after last frost. (seldom produces offsets). Seed Collecting: Permit fruit to ripen. Fruit must be significantly overripe before harvesting seed
