Rebutia muscula 'Orange Snowball'

Size: 2.5"

During the spring and summer months, there will be no question from whence Rebutia muscula ‘Orange Snowball’ earned its name! The furry-looking spines cloak the rounded stems in a hazy glow amplified by a profusion of large, bright orange, funnel-shaped blooms that ring the plant in color. As the blooms fade, the mound of offsets that begins to form around the base of the parent stem will take center stage, ultimately forming a cluster of texture and color up to 6 inches tall and wide.

Native to the challenging climate of Boliva, ‘Orange Snowball’ is well adapted to intensely bright and dry conditions. As such, the most important elements of its care are ample direct sunlight and a thorough yet infrequent watering routine. To further protect against excess moisture and the related issues with rot, be sure to situate ‘Orange Snowball’ within a porous soil mixture – such as a low organic matter cactus mix – and a well-draining pot. Furthermore, it is important to note that this specimen is only hardy to Zone 9, and thus cannot withstand a hard frost without significant damage to the plant.

    All plants are shipped bare-root with the exception of House Plants and Plant Club Subscription Boxes. House plants and succulents will ship from separate locations and may arrive at different times. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed. We ship within the USA and its outlying territories ONLY.

    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!
