Set of 3 - Gymno cactus Variegata - Variegated Mini Cactus

Pot size ⌀6.5cm


Gymnocalycium mihanovichii variegata, commonly known as Variegated Moon Cactus, is a small, colorful, and unusual cactus native to South America. It is a popular ornamental plant, prized for its unique appearance and easy care.

The variegated moon cactus has a spherical shape and lacks spines or areoles. It grows up to 2-3 inches tall and 2-3 inches wide. The upper portion of the plant is grafted onto the lower portion of another cactus, usually a Hylocereus or a Selenicereus species, which provides the root system and nutrients for the plant.

The upper portion of the plant can come in a range of bright colors, including red, orange, yellow, pink, and green, with a marbled or mottled appearance. The colors are caused by a lack of chlorophyll in the plant cells, which is compensated by the pigments produced by the plant.

The variegated moon cactus is a low-maintenance plant that requires bright, indirect sunlight and well-draining soil. It can be grown indoors or outdoors, but it should be protected from extreme heat and cold.

Peculiar quality is that these colourful cultivars possess its rainbow shades from a completely lack chlorophyll, exposing the red, orange, or yellow pigmentation.

Overall, the variegated moon cactus is a unique and eye-catching addition to any cactus collection, and its colorful appearance makes it a favorite among plant enthusiasts.
