Gymnocalycium andreae
Gymnocalycium andreae
Extremely popular in cultivation, and widespread in habitat in South America, Gymnocalyciums are generally globular plants, sometimes slightly columnar, but more often flattish and may be solitary or clump-forming. Most tend to be easy to grow in cultivation and quite free-flowering. Most have pink, cream or white flowers though there are others such as Gymnocalycium andreae with its yellow blooms.
