Tom Thumb Cactus

Parodia submammulosus has a standard Parodia-yellow flower with a not uncommon pink stigma. It’s got pretty big and vigorous spines for a little Parodia, but that’s what we like about it.

My copy of Anderson says it is distributed widely in Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. Anderson also says it’s proper name is Parodia mammulosa ssp submammulosa, but that’s too long for our labels, so I have chosen to use the recognized synonym of Parodia submammulosa which is still pretty darn long for our labels, but I was able to make it fit.

As this one is a flattened, globose cactus, that means it will get wider than tall. It will get up to 3″ tall and 5″ wide.
