Gymnocalycium cardenasianum

I recently received my new purchase!

Gymnocalycium cardenasianum; I’ve been wanting one of these for a while now and finally got round to finding/buying one. I was fairly put off by it at first, and other genera (such as the Turbinicarpus) because of  “slow growth”, but I realised that doesn’t matter, and since looking after them I haven’t come face to face with any problems.

It seems to be quite a young plant so i’m doubtful of  flowers any time soon, though in the meantime i’ll surely be kept amused by its appearance, as if a Lophophora williamsii, heavily armoured with extravagant spines.
