Ortegocactus Macdougallii Cactus
Ortegocactus macdougallii is a clumping, slow-growing, cactus that form tiny bushes only few centimetres in size. This species has a strange and unmistakable lime-green-grey coloured epidermis, each stem extends with the years, reaching a diameter of 3 to 4 cm. However, as these plants age, they tend to develop rust-coloured spots on them even in the care of the most accomplished growers. This rust-coloured spots are a common feature of wild plants too, and seems to help them to blend with the rust-coloured likens that grows in the background.
