FEATURES_ Stunning high altitude species from Peru. Beautiful golden spines, adn golden flowers. Oroya borchersii is a solitary globular cactus up to 20cm and completely covered with thin yellow spines.  It is considered one of the most beautiful species of this genus.  It reminds me of greek kadaifi noodles.

Cement planters are 10cm w x 10cm h using a quality compost-perlite-sand mix that is top dressed with pebbles or natural gravel.

This one prefers more sun and can be watered all year round.  Cacti prefer to completely dry out between waterings. Water the soil deeply so that water runs through the drainage hole and hits the roots for uptake to stem. Cacti are generally winter dormant so keep dry and warm in winter either inside in a bright, warm spot or sheltered outdoors and water sparingly, if at all, outdoors over winter. Lightly fertilizer (1/4 to 1/2 strength of normal plants) during the spring-summer growing season for best results.
