This cactus is often called the Powder Puff cactus because of its fur like hairs that come out of the body. It's also known as the "fish hook" because of its long red/magenta branches. This is a clumping cactus with red spines and white fur. Its flowers bloom into white/pink flower petals. Its peculiar look makes it a unique ornamental piece.
