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.

It arrived beautiful
It was perfect when it arrived, unfortunately a tree rat managed to try to eat it. LOL. I hope that it will still grow with a couple of hunks chewed out. Still alive and that's always good.
Looks great and was packaged just as good!
