Ariocarpus fissuratus

Sought by collectors, this rare and curious species has fleshy tubercles tightly packed on its crown into flat or slightly domed rosettes. Woolly tufts of spines grow in the center. Its open-faced pink flowers last for 3 to 4 days. This cactus can up to 50 years to reach full growth of 6 inches in diameter.
