Gymnocalycium stenopleurum

$ 15.00 Sold Out
Size: 4"

A cactus so unique it is often seen grafted atop other varieties to add a pop of color, the flesh of G. stenopleurum can range from a deep, dusky green to a dark purple, depending on the level of light exposure. Ridges along the rounded, compact barrel are dotted with fuzzy clusters of tiny spines called glochids, and large pink flowers can reach the same diameter as the plant itself!

Like all cacti, it prefers bright to direct sunlight, as well as a very porous soil mix. A well-draining, deeper pot will help defend the plant’s taproot against rot, as will thorough but infrequent watering in accordance with the ‘soak and dry’ method. Furthermore, take care to protect this South American native from frosty temperatures, as it is hardy only to Zone 9, and be especially cautious about damp soil conditions during the winter months.

    **Please Note: This plant is not available for wholesale**


    Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
