The genus Notocactus includes some thirty species, essentially small or medium sized. It reaches an average height of 30 cm although some can grow more. Young people have the classic spherical shape, which tends to lengthen with aging. These are very long-long fatty plants that bloom after 8-10 years of age. The thrust of its thorns almost seems to be "twisted" around the central axis and it is this characteristic that gives it a look of rugged and delicate plants at the same time.

Exposure and brightness: The stem is well protected thanks to the network of plugs, so it can be positioned in the sun.

Temperature: It is necessary to keep it above 8 ° C. In winter, therefore, it is recommended to repair it.

Soil type: Requires standard ground for cactaceae with a large drainage layer on the bottom of the vessel. In winter it is important that the soil remains dry.
