This is another pincushion cactus, commonly known as a "powder puff cactus". It caught my eye while out shopping. I just had to stop by the florist and see what interesting plants were on display. This handsome and snow-white fuzzy haired cactus reminded me of how varied, unusual and amusing the plant world can be.
The pincushion cacti are easy to keep and stay rather small. The powder puff won't grow much more than 3" wide but it will probably produce more powder puffs around or on top of it. It has brown fishhook spines so handle it with care. It blooms fairly easily indoors and it's flowers are white with a tinge of red.
If you happen to be in Mexico, you may come upon one of these growing outdoors in its natural habitat.
