Central spines: Has a very short but strong, recurving brownish-grey, large central spine. Slightly hooked or just with a slight kink at the end. Very dark red to almost black that can take a chalky colour ageing.
Radial spines: 7-10 short, straight but stout
Flower: Orange/Yellow and have orange or red midviens.
Fruit: Lemon yellow.

Cultivation: Slow growing to start but does well under cultivation. Suited for any rich, well drained soil in full sun troughout the year.   Water during the aestival growth cycle (this plant need plenty of water) But needs to be avoided wetting the bodies of these plants while they are in sunlight. A wet cactus in the sun light can cause sun burning which can lead to scares or even fungal infections and death.  In winter keep completely dry at 10°C, but can tolerate sporadic light frost.

Propagation: Seeds are the only way of reproducing.
