Strombocactus disciformis

These are gorgeous, slow-growing, miniature plants from Mexico. Seed grown and on their own roots, they reward us for our patience by providing flowers from Spring and throughout the Summer. Their reputation for being hard to grow isn't really justified, at least for adult plants. Don't over-water during the warm periods of the year and hold back on the temptation to water during the colder time of the year. Grow best in a good mineral substrate without a lot of humus.
