A common name includes Hedgehog cactus.

Flower: Yellow, with a deep red center.

Blooming season: Summer to Fall.

Cultivation and propagation: This species is easy and well worth growing. It requires little care once they have reached a nice flowering size. Thelocactus setispinus is suited for any rich, well-drained soil in full sun throughout the year (but does better with some light shade in the summer).

This plant needs plenty of water (indicatively to about once a week). Avoid wetting the bodies of these plants while they are in sunlight. A wet cactus in the sunlight can cause sun burning which can lead to scars or even fungal infections and death.

Frost tolerance: In winter keep completely dry at 5°C this usually aids in maintaining a healthier plant, but it is hardy as less as -12 to -7°C depending on the origin.

Always great plants

Another perfectly packed specimen. That was my lucky order as I've already had blooms in less than one month.

This one arrived in a weird pot, but no matter because it has several blooms popping up already. From the pictures I am hoping to see the stunning blooms soon!

Twisted Rib Cactus

I grow cacti native to my area here in Central Texas, and these are really nice specimens. So nice to get nursery grown plants, as they are scarce in the wild now.
