GeneralitŠ°

globose cacti, flattened in shape, small in size, native to South America; this genus has about 10-12 species. The body is rounded, with a diameter close to 10-15 cm in adult specimens, less than 10 cm tall, dark green in color, crossed by numerous ribs; the small areolas carry few gray thorns, very sharp. In the age between 7 and 10 years the plants develop a small cephalium, made up of light fluff, from which the flowers will bloom; the discocactus bloom in summer, producing numerous white flowers, delicately scented, which last a few hours, but bloom in succession.


Exposure

place in a bright place, but not exposed to direct sunlight in the hottest hours of the day; they can bear temperatures close to zero, but it is advisable to keep them at around 10-15 ° C even in winter, therefore they must be collected in the house or in a tempered greenhouse.
