Gymnocalycium mihanovichii hibotan Pink goes by the common name ‘Flapjacks.’ The plant originates from Africa and is a member of the Cactaceae family. The characteristic aspect of Flapjacks is its red-colored body that is mainly due to lack of chlorophyll.

The funnel/bell-shaped cacti grow to a height of 1 foot with a fast growth rate.

So cute!

I was worried about how this cactus would ship and whether the top would break off, but it was delivered in perfect condition! There’s a bright pink top and it looks exactly like the picture. Will definitely be buying more soon.
