Rebutia Albipilosa 

(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. This plant is shipped in its pot to prevent any damage to the roots).  

This species has an uncommon appeal, and is grown for its beautiful cream-white spines on fuzzy balls It also produces vibrant orange-red flowers.

Rebutia albipilosa is a plant from northern Argentina.  It's a white-furrowed cactus with dense,long, white bristles and a large main body, with several offsets that bloom sparely but regularly.

Stem: Flattish, 3-8 cm wide, 4-6 cm tall.  It would appear that in cultivation they grow larger and cluster more vigorously than in habitat.

Spines: White or cream-white, fine, long and soft, that cover the plant body.

Flower: Deep orange, funnel-shaped, 2 cm in diameter, from the base of the stems.

Fruit: Tiny, berrylike, hidden among the spines, bursting when ripe.

Keep dry in winter.  Hardy to -4°C.  Give them an airy spot and ensure good drainage.  The plants can be placed outdoors in April, but protected from rain and direct sunlight.  Some plants will scorch if placed in direct sun too quickly.  Water them thoroughly when placed out, and again in two weeks, and again in one week. After one month the plants are ready to be placed out in full sun and full rain for the summer.
