Melocactus Concinnus Cactus
It is a rare species that grows along with Melocactus conoideus on shallow, very drained, sandy substrata in the arid rocky upland habitat of the the campo rupestre / caatinga ecotone. This area is often described as a complex mosaic of micro-habitats. The strongly depressed (squat) habit of this species is thought to be an adaptation to minimise the effects of fire, although it can still get scorched on occasion.
Melocactus rest from October to April but can’t stand cold, or even fairly cool temperatures, so is indispensable to keep them above 8-12°C at all times.
