English

The name ‘aciculata’ derives from the Latin word "acicula", meaning "small head-covering pin", and, in fact, its epidermis is covered with small spines.

Its green-colored shovel-shaped stem is entirely covered with downy orange areoles, spaced apart, from which small agglomerated gold-colored spines grow.

In early summer, it blooms with golden-yellow or red-orange flowers, sometimes greenish in the center. It produces purple pear-shaped fruits.

Care

  • It likes an exposure to full sun in rather airy locations.
  • It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 3 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.
  • Water moderately and only when the soil is completely dry. It is enough to water it once a week in spring and summer, reduce it to once every two months in autumn and to suspend it completely in winter.
  • The best soil is a well-draining one, even better if further enriched with inert materials such as pumice, sand or lapilli.
  • They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
