Parodia chrysacanthion

(This plant comes in a 3.5 inch pot. You will receive a very similar plant to the one in the picture. It may or may not be blooming at the time of your purchase. The plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).

Also known as Golden Powder Puff.

Flower: The crown bears a mass of large golden flowers in spring and, often, pale yellow wool.

Blooming season: Spring.

Cultivation and propagation: Water these plants regularly This plant should remain rather dry at other times (especially in winter), except for a quick, periodic misting on warmer days in late winter. If it is kept absolutely dry for a long period, it tends to lose its roots in winter. It can tolerate light frost (- 4C°), but rots easily if wet and cold.
If the local climate is warm enough to grow this plant outside, be sure that soil is well drained and sun if full, but with protection from strong midday rays.

This is my first order here and I was extremely pleased. I bought this cactus along with two outhers. All of them where in grate condition. But this one was more than expected. Much larger than the rest and also in bud/flower. Was extremely happy and will definitely be back for more.
