Notocactus is a genus of about 25 species of South American cacti from low elevations of Argentina, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Southern Brazil. They are grown for their spine formations, as well as for their attractive flowers. The genus name comes from the Greek for "cactus from the south". It has now been merged with Parodia. Since the name Parodia was used before Notocactus, it has precedence and all the Notocactus became Parodia.
Notocactus are almost always globose, elongating as they age, some species eventually reach 3 feet (90 cm). They are often solitary, rarely offsetting.
Their flowers are funnel or bell shaped, yellow. They come in groups of 3 or 4 at several times during the year. Each flower lasts around a week.

Beautiful, healthy, quality cactus!

I don't know where to begin! This is AMAZING! I will start by saying I collect cactus. Out of many online experiences that went incredibly bad I had lost all hope to finding a good online shop. NOT ANYMORE PLANET DESERT TO THE RESCUE! it quickly arrived. they wrapped so well not even a pebble rock was out of place! These cactus were stunningly beautiful!!! My photos won't do them justice! Some had beautiful flower stems just ready to open! Amazed! I'd give a million stars if I could! ❤️ The newest, forever Planet Desert top fan!!!! Happy growing! ❤️
