Encephalocarpus strobiliformis

Encephalocarpus strobiliformis, formerly known as Pelecyphora strobiliformis, is a slow-growing geophytic succulent, with solitary or multiple stems barely rising above ground level

 It’s a fairly easy species to cultivate, but very slow-growing. It needs a very well drained soil, and requires strong sun to part sun to develop good spinal growth. Waterings should be rather infrequent, to keep the plant compact and avoid it becoming excessively elongated and unnatural in appearance. Keep dry in winter or when night-time temperatures remain below 10° C. It is hardy to -4°C for a short period. Assure good ventilation
