Common Name: spider cactus
Origin: Gymnocalycium horstii originates from Uruguay, eastern Paraguay, southern Brazil, and northeastern Argentina, on rocky outcrops in the Pampas grasslands.
Description: G. horstii is a distinctive, globose cactus with minimal spines that curve toward the plant body, and slightly defined ribs. It begins as a single stem but develops into a small aggregation as the species ages. From mid spring to late summer, beautiful pink to white flowers can form, showy and large in comparison to the cactus.
